Many a Roaring Fork tradster got their teeth sharpened on this open book corner; the old timers refered to it as the Graduation Crack. Leading this crack was the graduation lead to become a climber. An excellent first lead, the Jungle Book is found on the east side of No Name Creek, the furthest right corner of the Pink Face and Lone Pine Tree climbs. It is immediately to the right of a right arching crack in a large grey slab. Begin in a corner with a few stemming chimney moves to a ledge. Continue up the open book corner to Metolius rap anchors at about seventy feet. If you have any size of gear you can probably place it; the upper portion can use either large gear or slings around chockstones, or you can solo it in your approach shoes to retrieve lost gear from beginners.
A standard granite rack.
