Description

This is the farthest upstream route for the Lower Gorge area documented in the Watts guide. It is a must-do for long time gorge aficionados and affords great views around the corner to the Upper Gorge as well as a unique perspective downstream to the Lower Gorge. Climb a short hand crack to a ledge then fire up an easy corner. Thin hands with sharp edges up high lead to a crux pulling through a mini roof with plentiful lichen on the holds to keep things interesting.

Location

The farthest left side of the Jungleland. Plan to spend 10 minutes or more bushwhacking the 100 yards past Bush Doctor to reach it. You may want to bring a machete.

Protection

Gear to 3 inches. No anchors so bring some tat or down-climb the chimney (5.7 squeeze?) behind and left of the route and scramble down ledges to the ledge beneath the corner system.
