BETA PHOTO: Not as Fat/Hard as it looks


Like the Colobus Monkey, this black and white crack is nicer than it looks. Not nearly as funky as it's namesake, this well protected line climbs fast and smooth. Follow the constricting break up and left to a chain anchor. Good moves and good protection.

Start directly right of Baby Gorillas are Cute in a large, tapering crack. Fun and surprising movement.


Close to the entrance of the Upper Jungle, the Colobus Crack is the obvious line before the entrance of the gully.


Large to small cams, from a #5 camalot and down.

Don't let the width scare you, there are enough face holds to make this beast a fun moderate. How often do you get to place a #5 without the associated heinous OW move?
