Another blast from the past, this is actually a direct finish of sorts to Jungle Gym. I remember it being really good and really hard, but since it was yet another variation to Jungle Gym (along with Slim Jim and Hard On), I didn’t crow much about it back when. Let’s see if MP can help generate some interest. Perfect Peter leaves Jungle Gym about the half-way point and beelines straight up past a bolt to Garden Ledge. (PS, sorry for all the phallic names; we were going through our irreverency period).


Start on Jungle Gym.


Standard trad rack.

While JS did crow much about it, I did get a rave from him one night about this route. It sounded hard enough and desperate enough that I didn't want to get on it.
