Stay between the left two of three incipient cracks.There are some nice big holds out left, but don't touch them; they are not on the route. Start with a committing and delicate layback, then climb thin holds to the top. The crux is about 2/3 of the way up.


Jungle Cliffs, proceed up river from the main descent. It's about 3/4 of way to the end of the Jungle Cliff formation. Proceed a little further up river to a ramp that gains access to the top of the formation for anchor setup.


There is a large boulder and an arched tree root that can be use for the anchor. Do not use the fallen tree that overhangs the top of the route.
