Ascending the end of George of the Jungle.
Thirty feet east of The Kitchen
. Multiple routes rating from 5.8 to 5.12 climb up or on either side of an overhanging arete.
The main face of George
(10 feet over from the main arete) hosts several nicely bolted routes that are sure to thrill the intermediate level climber.
All routes feature good bolt anchors at the top.
Hike up the canyon from the main parking lot for about .25 miles. Pass the water house on your right, and after passing The Kitchen
on your right go through the main, green gate.
You will immediately see a short gully to right of the trail that goes up about 25 feet of trail before it hits a large chimney with a giant chockstone placed in it about 20 feet up. George
starts at the arete on the left side of the chimney and includes all of the faces to the east along the craggy face.
