A scary name for a scary climb, if 5.9 is your limit. In my years at RRG I never saw another person on this one or heard anyone speak of it. Obscure for sure.
Come around the corner from the imposing Jungle Beat and look up at this apparently less-imposing route, but don't let its benign appearance fool you.
Struggle up the low angle section through some vegetation (still there?) and up into the corner. Start the battle in earnest on cleaner rock and climb 180' in all to the top of the cliff past cracks and chimneys. A little bit of everything on this climb, including, unfortunately, some bushes, some dirt and some loose rock. Still worth doing though.


On the far left side of Military wall, around a corner and Right of the huge roof of Jungle Beat, is this tall, right-facing dihedral with a crack system.


A heavy trad rack with plenty of slings.
