Description

Moving over the head wall is the crux. Keep in mind the blocks at the base of this head wall look dubious though they could not be moved.

Location

Mid way along the Village Wall in the Distant Drum Area where the trail drops down into some shady trees.

Protection

Quick draws and runners.

My comment from Touch No Evil applies here too: this line would probably not get climbed anywhere but at the Jungle where it ends up being a super fun addition.
Stem your way up the lower section until you get boxed in an alcove capped with a loose block of three. Extract yourself on the left via wild moves. The FA must have been 8' tall, that crux bolt is up there... Jul 2, 2012

Very enjoyable route and on a section of 3 climbs well worth the walk down. The route quality at the top of the stemming deteriorates but with more ascents it should clean up decently. If you are used to the perfect quality at places like LCC then you may get a bit scetched out but it is still safe and all a part of Jungle climbing. The difficult to clip bolt coming out of the alcove was placed high due to the rock quality dictating it's position. If you don't get hurried and just climb out of the alcove, there is a great hold to clip from. Nov 18, 2012
