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.

Many a Roaring Fork tradster got their teeth sharpened on this open book corner; the old timers refered to it as the Graduation Crack. Leading this crack was the graduation lead to become a climber. An excellent first lead, the Jungle Book is found on the east side of No Name Creek, the furthest right corner of the Pink Face and Lone Pine Tree climbs. It is immediately to the right of a right arching crack in a large grey slab. Begin in a corner with a few stemming chi...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
