Description

No claims have been made that this is Jungle Jive. Probably is, maybe its not but it does sit between Dump Truck and Lost In Space? The climbing does closely match Toula's description of "5.11 stem box (mossy). The ambiguity and the fact that this route hides completely behind the three largest Fir trees has kept Jungle Jive a hidden classic. Possibly one the better stem routes at the Forks, Jungle Jive climbs a rememberable twin seem elevator shaft. Do some laps on D.D. and get your butt muscles prepped to Jive.

Location

Meander somewhat to the middle of The Jungle Wall. Hidden behind the three largest Fir trees. Look for the obvious twin seams in a steep elevator shaft. Starts in the bobbles.

Protection

Mostly Thin:
Comfortable amount of #00 C3 - Fingers
1x others
#4 optional at the start
Nuts and Butts
Runners

Amazing! Wide stemming with good protection. The "jungle" setting makes for a great experience. Aug 15, 2015
FA Jim Haisley w/ P Davidson and T Coats (I think)
I am pretty sure Jim led this on site all clean.
He is a tall, supple lad, I'm a short stocky one.
Seems like I cussed him the whole second half.
Really a fine line as seen in the pics.
Rarely done because it's hidden behind the pines, it's on the jungle wall and there's lichen, or at least appears to be.
As I recall, the climbing turned out to be stellar, pro was great, and the stems were WIDE.

Nice to dig out the missing classics. Sep 20, 2014
