Start at 'Welcome to the Jungle' anchor. Stem past a bolt and nut placement into a steep, left-facing corner. Face climb left up thin edges (5.10a), passing a handful of bolts. Move straight up to a splitter finger crack (5.9). Jam this for 30' to chain anchors. A very enjoyable pitch. I recommend carrying wire brushes to clean dirty holds as this climb probably doesn't receive much traffic....[more]   Browse More Classics in AK
