Jungle Wall Rock Climbing
Quality position and rock. December 2013.
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
Jungle Wall is a really cool place to go and do some craggin. It is in the shade pretty much all day. The rock is hard and beautiful. You won't have to wait in line for a route. And when you rope up, you can count on doing a whole lot of climbing before you untie. Oh, and the view is awesome.
Park at the Pine Creek pull off and go towards Olive Oil on Rose Tower. Continue up past the base of Olive Oil and follow the right hand side of the gully until you near the top 1/3 of it. The the Jungle Wall is on your left. It is the obvious dark varnished wall that will catch your eye.

Man this route is rad. Start climbing off the nice little ledge on some pretty thin slabbin straight up the black water streak (crux). On this section you will make your way past five bolts until you gain a nice little crack on your right after a nice rest. Climb up the crack system which is really cool using finger locks, hand jams and crimps until you hit another bolt at about 100 feet. At this point, bust out right and do a cruxy move pulling the buldge on your right, while clippin another bo...[more] Browse More Classics in NV

The wall must get its name from the bushwacking you'll do to get there. Thankfully, as of today, the bushes have been clipped and the going is much, much easier. That said, it still took us at least an hour and a half to reach the base of the wall and we're quite familiar with RRCNCA trails and approaches. Nonetheless, it's totally worth the hike to climb on the wall. Great rock and amazing position.
