Mikey is lichen it.

Description 

Speculated to be the best new route at the forks for 2016 ( also the only one) The bear necessities until now lay hidden behind a curtain of lichen camo. It was likely top roped some time in the dark ages but judging by the condition of the route it doubtfully has seen a lead. From the belay ledge head of the right crack and quickly transfer to the middle finger ish crack . After some fun moves in the .5 size crack with good stems, reach over and transfer into the far left thin hands crack. Ride the splitter up as it goes form 1's to 3's and then get ready for the roof. Glory hand jams and good feet will bring you out of the right side of the roof that finishes the route off.

Location 

just to the right of Jangala, on the far left side of the jungle wall, rap down and make a gear anchor on the belay ledge. the rap line can be set of the the prominent horn on the left side of the jungle wall and backed up with a huge pine tree

Protection 

doubles .4 to 3, bring a few extra finger pieces to make the belay on the ledge.

Super fun, perfect for the Jungle circuit, roof really ties it together nicely! Maybe an ol' line that William 'Old Bill' Williams ran up and down back in the day; certainly brought into the times with scrubbing and sending!

Just revisited this line and was quite happy to find it very clean and more fun than I remembered. I now highly recommend this to the Forks climber looking for something quality and unique. If this line was anywhere else in the area it would be a obvious classic. Go do it!
