A solid crack climb up some of the best rock in the Jungle. Begin in a right sweeping crack and follow this onto a steep face. When the final crack ends, traverse right onto the ledge and shared anchor of She Jane. Killer moves up a varied break, end the climb at a shared two bolt anchor. Good, intense climbing with solid protection.


On the far, right end of the Distant Drum, this climb is found soon after the collapsed Jared Diamond Tower. This wall stands alone in a nice cove at the bottom of a small hill. Me Tarzan is the thin crack about seven feet left of She Jane.


A single set of cams and stoppers up to 2.5 inches.

A stout little number. Load up on small gear, you could place a #3 in the pod but the majority of the crack is really thin. Grey/purple C3, red X4, grey mastercam are your friend. Doubling on .5 and .75 is nice when things open up a bit. Beware of the questionable gaston before getting to the crack.
