BETA PHOTO: Beta topo (8/19/12)

Description 

This is sharply-broken volcanic rock (an Andesitic Lava) forming the upper of two bands of cliffs ("Upper Jungle"). Look for a large scree field(and then drive a 1/4 mi. more). There are numerous long cracks and face climbs.

Check or print the Topo below.


Getting There 

From Pine Lake, continue on road (132) for 5.9 miles until Powell Point jeep trail on right(143),GO PAST THIS ROAD and set odometer again and travel 1.9 miles past Powell Point jeep trail and PAST THE UPPER JUNGLE SCREE FIELD (looks like a single-car pullout on a hairpin turn). Just a bit up the road look for a parking area on right (The Lower Jungle), and continue around the corner up the road 100 meters to the "Upper Jungle" (well marked). Short approach DOWN to the crag marked by cairns all along the way.
