Description

Watch out for barndooring! Fun liebacks in a open book dihedral. "Jungle Book" is pumpy and physical but can be finessed with good fingerlock technique. A very enjoyable crack climb.

Protection

Three bolts on top for setting up a toprope. Bring long slings. Thin crack/pin scars. Pro up to 2 1/2" mostly smaller pieces.

This climb was buurrrnneeeyy. A sustained workout. Jun 25, 2002
Scary lead in soft sandstone. Top-rope is now easy to set up on new bomber bolts with permanent biners. I never get tired of this strenuous lie-backing to a balancy step right into the small cave. Lower off and do it again without rest until you look like popeye! Aug 26, 2002

Sketchy gear! Very physical for the first few moves with a balancey crux. Thank god the one good piece comes right before. I'd put it at 10c/d given the sketch factor. Some nice moves, short though. Apr 29, 2008
First go I barndoored off. 2nd go I ripped the starting left hand crimp off the wall. Total bummer. Hadn't rained for nearly a month when I pulled the hold in late April. Probably still goes but might be slightly harder. May 13, 2009
