Charlie on Ecocide


Thin technical start (crux) in a shallow dihedral gives way to good rests before a left-trending traverse under a roof on decent holds. Continue moving left through a small corner, around a massive flake, and up another small corner before ending at a two-bolt anchor on a ledge.

Things to consider: As with all new Jungle Cliff routes, Ecocide is a little dusty. The best way to clean it is to climb it. So climb it! Also, after the first 20 feet, this route continuously trends left to the anchors, making it tricky to clean when being lowered. It is advised if possible to clean via following the route.


Furthest right bolt line (as of now) on Jungle Cliff. Starts in a shallow dihedral under a roof.


Seven bolts to a two bolt anchor. All bolts 1/2", stainless steel, and perma-drawed.

Fun and interesting route. Highly recommended. The crux hits low--bring a stick clip!

Great choice on material for the bolting, thanks for your share and work!

Any chance of a photo and topo overlay? ;)

Fun route, with some tricky, powerful moves before the first bolt, and then an interesting crux up higher. Rest of the route is pretty cruiser.

Two new developments:

1. The fourth bolt on this route was relpaced due to it constantly spinning loose. The new bolt is in a position that is more evenly spaced and in a more direct bolt line. I think the reason for it spinning was due to it being under a lip and slightly off the bolt line. Hopefully this will negate the problem. You still clip from the same stance and the new bolt is also 1/2" and stainless steel.

2. I was climbing the route yesterday and at the 5th bolt in the flakes a bat started to screach at me. I am not sure if this is a normal bat home or this particular bat was just taking a layover, but beware unless you want to get bitten by an angry bat.

Nice addition to the crag. Technical crux down low to typical Broughtons chicanery to get into the traverse.

I love this route. The bottom section is pretty stiff, though. I have taken a major fall right at, but before clipping the second bolt and I didn't come anywhere near decking. That first bolt placement is pretty perfect.

Two permadraws were added to the first couple bolts bringing the total to 4 permadraws on the route. This makes cleaning much much easier.

As soon as I can get some climbtech cable draws, I will install them on the rest of the bolts. This is with the blessing of the original people who developed the route.

All the bolts are perma-drawed now. There's no need to bring quick draws unless you are setting up a top rope (please only top rope on your own gear).

Brilliant route! Super fun, memorable, juggy climbing following the technical crux!
