Description 

Looming over the hobo cave awaits this steely-eyed test-piece. One perfect weakness climbs this extremely overhung face. Start from the obvious jug at the arÍte and crank through the first of two high-gravity bouldery cruxes. Thin and sharp crimps, pockets, and yes, even a jug or two, pack a punch in just under 60 feet of dacite.

Location 

The overhanging bulletproof face above the hobo cave as you arrive to the Jungle.

Protection 

6 bolts. usually with fixed draws.
stick clip the 1st one or bring a crash pad. The horizontal crack at the start of Jungle Buzzard can be used to re-direct the belayer. Long draw on bolt 3 to clip from the jug.
