Big moves that takes gear well. Boissal's Photo.


This is a stemming problem in a right-facing dihedral. Feet are most often on opposite faces and the crack is used primarily for protection.


This climb, in the "Upper Jungle" is left of "Gorillas in the Crack" and right of "Great Ape Escape" in a right-facing dihedral that leads to a large ledge atop the pillar forming the dihedral.


Medium to wide cams to chains.

Above the anchor is a really good looking arete that needs somebody to come put it up thereby establishing the first multi-pitch route in the Upper Jungle.
