This route will improve with more traffic and some cleaning. It is the obvious crack left of the bolted face for "As good as it gets" and right of the corner for "Highway to Hell." It is probably the most straightforward route on the Jungle Gym left wall, but I found it more difficult than "Stairway to Heaven." Starts on big granite jugs (careful as some of these may not be solid) then moves into long crack that tops out on arete which is followed to the same chain bolt and piton anchor for "Stairway to Heaven" and "Highway to Hell." You may have too look around and do some cleaning for a good placement early on. A wide range of cams was nice to have.
