Description [Suggest Change]
Pretty cool spot with loads of 5.9 to 5.12+ sport routes. Routes spread out to the right and are somewhat hidden in the trees until you get right up to the crag. Climbing is edgy, blocky, and often a bit steep. Most routes are short, and a 60 meter cord is more than adequate. The overall good sun, woodsey setting, and well bolted lines make the hump up well worth the effort. Show Pony ont left is pretty cool at 5.9. Burning Rubber about 30 ft right is killer at 12a. Great job by Tom Perkins and the rest of his crew.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Follow the general directions to the Second Grotto Wall, but drive 8.4 miles West on Colo 82 from the tourist parking at Independence Pass. The trail is a short bit West of the parking (on the right and cairned). Jungle Wall is a hump up-hill. Follow the trail for 10 minutes or so to Greg's cliff, continue left around Greg's for another 5 to minutes, and pass the Prison Wall (or stop and climb!), and continue left and up-hill for another 15 minutes to Jungle Wall (net is about half an hour).
