My daughter Kira on the crux of Jungle Mountaineer...

Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


The crux is off of the 3rd bolt moving through the roof on the first pitch. It never gets any harder.


This is the left most route at The Jungle (right now). To the left of the route is a crack that seems to stays wet. To the right of this route is the route, Welcome to The Jungle.


This is bolt protected. The 1st pitch has [11] bolts; pitch 2, 8 bolts; pitch 3, 12 bolts.

This is a great route. We climbed the first pitch then rapped. Moved onto Welcome to the Jungle and combined that with the 2 upper pitches of Jungle Mountaineering. All pitches are great especially the 3rd.

Fun climb, the 3rd pitch, is cool, wish it was longer, for me the crux was the 2nd pitch,

The bolt count is wrong, 11 bolts for the 1st pitch, it's wrong in the RRR guide too, says 9, was short 2 draws, it's right in the new South platte guide,

FYI - page 18 of RRR, 5th paragraph indicates that the bolt counts in the book are approximate. On this particular climb, there are 5 different alternatives that could be used to access the upper pitches. It would have been nice if the steepness & features on the start of pitch 3 went on for a long ways, but at least it was fun for awhile. There's still quite a bit of room for more moderate multi-pitch action on this wall when someone gets around to doing it.

Can confirm that 11 draws are needed for this (then again, if you pull the crux, skipping one bolt up high is not that big of a deal...).

Each pitch had a fun, interesting sequence. Worth doing.

Are all 3 pitches 5.10a or does it run easier than that with just a few 5.10a spots?

First two pitches are 5.9. Last pitch is the 5.10.
