Description

This is sharply-broken volcanic rock (an Andesitic Lava) forming the lower or right and north band of cliffs on the right side of the road. There are many excellent, long cracks and sport climbs.

Print the JUNGLE MINI-GUIDE using the link above.

Getting There

From Pine Lake; continue on road (143) for 5.9 miles until Powell Point jeep trail on right; 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) to the "Lower Jungle" et al. parking area on right. This flat, rocky spot might hold 5 well parked vehicles, There are several cairns marking the trail which starts with a few big steps up, a built up log crossing, and finaly terra firma. The trail leads from here north along the base of the band of cliffs through the "Lower Jungle" routes, the "Distant Drum Area" routes, "Planet of the Apes" and finally to the "Pangaea" routes. The entire trail is now from parking area to its terminus approximately 5.5 km.s and takes about 35-45 min.s depending on your level of gawking at the magnificent views on your right shoulder and/or the outrageous routes on your left.
