Approaching the crux roof on the first pitch.

Description 

This is a three pitch moderate line up the right hand side of The Jungle formation. The first pitch starts on the mellow slab and pulls a small roof about halfway up at a small, right-facing corner. 5.6, 7 bolts.

The second pitch starts above the belay and angles left over easy ground to a ledge below a crack in a steep wall. This wide, arching crack is the crux. 5.9, 9 bolts.

The third pitch is short and heads up a slab on good holds. When the angle eases off, a bolt anchor is found to the left. 5.7, 6 bolts.


Location 

This is the furthest right bolted line at The Jungle. It starts downhill from the other routes near a large pine tree next to the slab. To get down, walk off to the right or rappel. If rappelling, descend to the second belay and then rappel The Green Tornado which is climber's left of Lost in the Jungle. A single rope, even a 70m, is not long enough to rappel from the second anchors to those atop the first pitch. Do not rappel the lower part of the route without two ropes.


Protection 

Bolts. There are fixed anchors atop each pitch.

FA: Chris Perkins Todd Leeson, Summer 2009.

The crux pitch, the left-leaning crack, was done without bolts on the FA.

On the second pitch of the FA, I told DD that I was going to step up "here" place a piece of gear, see if we needed any bolts and then move up, pointing to a large, pointy hold. I then proceeded to grab aforementioned hold, and pulled off a large sliver of rock bigger than my arm. Gotta be careful out there!
