An exciting and aesthetic, mixed line. Start on a steep, juggy face and climb up and right passing four bolts. Ever thinning, this route's crux lies in the middle. The climbing gets steeper as you ascend and eases up in difficulty as it gets higher. Finish the route up a fingers/thin hands crack to a chain anchor. Cool moves over great rock! A really fun line.


After passing the Upper Jungle proper, at the apex of a small slope, this is the first line you encounter.


Draws and slings for four bolts and small to medium cams/stoppers. Finish at a chain anchor.

This looks like a broken up version of the perfect shields you see at the Lower Jungle. Thin face moves and intricate pro will get you into the steep finger crack up top.

Put up, ground up, OS with shaky gear in expando blocks that were thankfully removed. Proud!

Watch out clipping the second bolt! Tall man Greg did not take into consideration other shorter mortals and if you miss the clip you will deck. There is a great left hand to clip from...if you can not see it from a shorter stature. Then it is no problem! Great line guys! Thanks! I had fun!
