Tackle said roof and establish on the face above, following an offset seam with the occasional edge or crack feature and fighting the growing pump by milking unobvious rests. The climbing gets steeper, thinner and more technical, eventually leading into an intimidating blocky area. The route takes the path of least resistance through this, heading left to an obvious stance where a large cube used to reside. Things may appear a bit hollow in the area but we were ruthless with the cleaning and what's left is not going anywhere.
Take note of the 9th bolt a ways out right and don't get greedy with an early clip: it's easily reachable from the stance, not so much from below while pumped.
Gingerly surmount the last of the blocks and veer right, aiming for the faint dihedral which forms the upper headwall. Take a deep breath and fire the last 30' of slightly overhanging rock, pulling long technical moves on small but positive edges. If the pump catches up with you before you clip the chains expect a long clean ride!
The route got its name from the numerous trips we had to take up and down the poop chute and the massive amounts of choss we tossed off the top before we could even start cleaning the face. As usual in the Jungle, the recipe for a rad new line is a (dumb) vision, lots of sweat and time with the trusty hammer/crowbar/steel brush combo!
If you have a dog, want to warm up along the way or dislike via ferratas you can park at the Lower Jungle and take a 25-30 minutes stroll depending on the weight of your pack.
