Description

Welcome to the Jungle is open for business. Its a bit dirty on some of the ledges and needs some bolts moved around for the 2 different finishes. The left finish, original finish, has changed some since the blocks came off. Still needs some cleaning. This keeps the route at low end 5.11
The right finish is considerable harder with a couple of difficult reaches and a burly top out bumps the grade closer to 5.12a.
 

Location

Left side of Jungle cliff. 2nd route from the far left. Shares first bolt with unfinished moderate on the left.

Protection

9 lead bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with fixed biners for lowering.

There are draws currently hanging on Welcome to the Jungle. I will likely leave them up for a while to encourage people to give it some love. I plan on leaving permadraws on several of the harder to clip bolts. Please give it a go or two and let me know if any of the clips need to be moved or re-organized. Have fun, bring a brush or 2.

Fun route! Lots of bizarre mantling down low yields to steep, juggy bulge climbing up higher. A long pitch, but with many no-hands rests. Pretty accessible at the grade. Jan 31, 2016

I can't recommend this route. While it may clean up eventually the refrigerator sized block mentioned is hollow sounding enough I will probably never climb again. I believe some folks might enjoy but I did not. I like my belayer :). Apr 4, 2016

Hey everyone, heads up I am in the process of cleaning the aforementioned blocks from WttJ. I got one of them off, but the other, much larger block will require some special de-chossing techniques. I will try to get it off of there this weekend hopefully. Best to avoid that part of the cliff until I've had a chance to knock it off. Thanks. Apr 22, 2016

I thought this route was fantastic. Not sure on the progress of removing all of the loose blocks, but I can certainly attest to there being some loose rock about 2/3 of the way up still. I was able to pull through that section without using any of the seemingly fantastic jugs.

Certainly not a climb for anyone who is concerned with the disadvantages of trying newly established routes. This route could become one of many amazing 5.11s that Broughton has to offer after a solid safety sweep and more traffic to clean off the dirt layer. Jul 1, 2016

Kyle Terry and I removed the deathblock on 11/20/16. As of now it is still very dirty were the block used to be. Nov 20, 2016

The description for this route should probably be updated now that the loose block is gone. I climbed it this week and didn't have any concerns with loose rock. A couple of the bigger upper ledges still have dirt in the back, but nothing was dirty on the actual handholds and footholds. The route was definitely approachable for the grade due to all the rests, and all the short boulder problems in between rests were fun. My only nitpick was that the locations for the top 2 bolts were a little wonky. May 25, 2018

description slightly updated. I will be getting back out to Jungle cliff to do some more cleaning and prep on this route pretty soon. It is still climbable in the meantime so get on it. Check out the right finish, let me know what you think. I will probably post it as a separate route soon. Jun 9, 2018
