BETA PHOTO: Jungle Buzzard arete. Project on the left with the...


A Jungle Buzzard is one who preys on his own.... So look out for this severely overhanging arete. NOTE- you will probably want to hang the second draw, and stick clip the first. Power your up to the obvious jug (V?) and then continue past another little burly move to access some larger holds. Turn the slab and scamper to the top.


Furthest route to the right, starts on same holds as the Hobo Proj.


6 bolts, 2 bolt fixed biner anchor.

For me it was all about getting a very high left foot, just on the left side of the arete. Then the small left hand crimp.... I think it's harder than 5.12.

Word. The first boulder problem is manageable, but it's pretty funky between the 2nd and 3rd bolt.

If I rated it as a boulder problem...I'd call it at least v5....possibly v6...which makes it at least 12c. Tamara must be crushing for this to feel like a b/c.

I was thinking V6 was pretty solid, but maybe not in cooler temps?

One long crux from ground to above bolt 3. Powerful and off balance movement with leggy compression. Roped bouldering is my kind of bouldering! Would be three stars if it were twice as long.
