Gorilla Love Affair

Description 

Gorilla Love Affair is a terrific climb on the left side of the Jungle Cliff. It is unusually clean for a Jungle Cliff climb, possibly due to its (relative) popularity. G.L.A. offers several strenuous but fun cruxes which are separated by good rests. A small cam can be placed after the last bolt before transitioning left onto the finishing slab (although the remaining climbing is fairly casual).

Location 

Left side of the Jungle Cliff. It will probably be the only climb with chalk visible.

Protection 

6 (newly replaced) bolts and an optional #2 C3

This route is a must do 5.10+ for Broughton. Technical and difficult crux, with excellent moves the entire route.

So much fun! I'm not sure climbing can even be more enjoyable than GLA!
