Aqualung is a demanding finger to hand crack line over on the right (west) end of the Jungle Wall, across from East Of Eden. Start at a nice finger crack in a stem-box corner of golden rock. Crank your way up the finger crack (crux) to reach the hand crack above, which is followed to the rim.


Nuts, small (0 TCU) to large (#3 Camalot) cams. It is possible to place a #4 Camalot sized piece in this route, if you want to take it along.

Aqualung is a great summertime route to climb when the pillow and prow walls are busy. Sweet stemming in the first 30' with locker jams. After the ow pod finish up an easier large hands crack. This route is difficult to set up a TR anchor on. A top belay or lead tends to work best. May 17, 2006

a spectacular route- definitely a must-do for anyone solid on 5.10 at the forks. lead it, though as the tr anchor would be really weird and not as happily bomber as your usual TR anchor at the forks. Sep 4, 2008

As a first-time visitor to the area, I would describe this as a must-do route. Also, with a decent length of cord and a 70M rope, it is extremely easy to set up a TR/rap anchor by slinging the knobby summit block of the pillar that sticks up from the rim directly above this route. May 17, 2010

What's the story with the two chopped bolts at the top of this climb? I'm glad they're gone, but if there was ever a climb that could use a couple of bolts to lower from, this is it. I didn't have the tools to file down the sleeve extensions that are still sticking out of the rock... but it seems that if you're going to have steel sticking out of the rock, might as well have it be something useful, rather than just an eyesore in such a beautiful place.

This route is really good. And no need for bolts at the top. Sep 16, 2012

Wow! This thing is awesome. I didn't place anything smaller than a #2 yellow Metolius and I sewed it up. Sep 4, 2017
