Description [Suggest Change]

This crag is now the most northerly of the Jungle's areas. Though less than four miles from the Lower Jungle parking spot, it does drive slow. The approach is an easy 10 minute walk and oh so worth your efforts! These are not only the tallest walls in the Jungle but are composed of the best rock as of yet found in the area. There are numerous multi-pitch possibilities in both trad and sport settings. That being said, the cracks here are exceptionally good. The entire cliff band faces south and would, with its dark red patina-ed rock, warm rapidly. There are however, large Aspens at the base of the walls providing shade for belayers, dogs, and gear. The views from the trees look out over amazing scenery and will be often photographed. I expect some rapid development here due to the quality and quantity of potential routes.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Set your odometer at the Lower Jungles parking area. Drive up and north for just a tad over 3 miles. Here there is a left turn into a very large meadow. Take the gravel double track left and west until you reach a a short rail fence. Follow a right split around the north end of this fence and then follow the double track that hugs the interface between forest and meadow. Avoid access issues by NOT driving on meadow habitat! On your right, a meadow drainage will begin to develop, when the road meets said drainage, and you see an awesome camp site with a ring, stumps and level tent spots, park. From the main road to your parking spot is about 0.7 miles.

Then hike following cairns and a "cut" trail left of the rocky drainage until the trail cuts down at a dead fall and into a dry stream and west to a cairn on the right bank where an obvious trail leads into the trees. You will soon emerge on a flat and stable talus field. Follow cairns marking the trail that leads to the walls base. An easy 10 minute hike at best.  See the Jungle cover page for a road map/topo of the area.  Click the map title to get the beta.  There are several projects here.  Please only climb the posted routes.
