BETA PHOTO: The route snakes its way to the flat headwall


This fun sport line, named after the Disney song from the Jungle Book, is located at the very end of the Commuter Wall and as of 06/11/12 is the furthest route from the parking lot.

Fun crimpy moves lead to a 5.10 crux and a headwall where toe/heel hooks can be usefull. Six bolts with chain anchors.


The very end of the Commuter Wall before what is now being called the Village Wall.


You need just the bare necessities....6 sport draws and something for the anchors.

This little line looks innocent and unappealing from the ground but it would be a shame to skip it. Devious climbing on small holds to a fun arete-slapping finish make it a really good addition to the area.

I thought the route was fun and crimpy. And so pretty to look at with the colorful lichen.

Great route with really fun movement, wish it was longer. Great warm-up for other routes in this area.
