Jungle Book. Nice climb. Plenty of pro to be had.

Description 

The Gray Face has a couple of the most popular climbs in No Name and has some of the cleanest rock.

Getting There 

Hike to the trail that cuts under the Lone Pine Tree wall. Cross a steep, loose gully and up a steep trail/slope to the base of the wall. There may be a fixed rope across the gully. The trail is in pretty rough shape but please don't make matters worse by hiking directly up the loose area below the wall or by shortcutting the trail.

This route is located immediately to the left of the Jungle Book. It is a right-arching crack splitting the large gray practice slab. Start in the alcove in the center of the slab reaching up to the finger slots. After the crux move (the start is maybe a wee bit harder than 5.8), jam and lieback the ever-widening crack. Following the crack up and to the right on a ledge brings you the anchors of the Jungle Book. Two variations exist on the top. 1st variation: (5.1...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
