Center of Jungle Gym left wall. Route starts on the juggy and somewhat dirty features down low then moves on to the steep face with 4 bolts to the 2 bolt anchor (anchor bolts are vertical and hard to see). Initially the placements are questionable and may require some searching and cleaning. There are options for decent placements (hard to see and imagine from the ground) between the somewhat runout bolts. Once on the bolted face the difficulty steps up considerably and stays constant through the finish with sustained thoughtful movement. The lower part of the route is somewhat dirty and the face has some lichen due to lack of traffic, but it's still a good route. Would be great with more traffic and cleaning.
