The Jungle Wall Rock Climbing
Z. Harrison working his way up the elevator shaft ...
The Jungle Wall is found directly across the canyon from the Gold Wall and is the north-facing wall south of the Gold Pond. The rock tends to be not as good as other areas here, and tends to gather dirt from rim erosion, so it is less visited than those areas. At least one route should be done here, Aqualung (5.10), across from East Of Eden (Gold Wall), a really nice finger to hand crack on relatively clean rock.
Jungle Wall is across from the Gold Wall. The top can be reached by hiking around to the rim above via the western end of the Gold Pond canyon to rap in. Alternatively, you can rap from the Gold Wall and then scramble across the canyon to reach a route as well (non-TR).
Climbing Season For the Paradise Forks area.

No claims have been made that this is Jungle Jive. Probably is, maybe its not but it does sit between Dump Truck and Lost In Space? The climbing does closely match Toula's description of "5.11 stem box (mossy). The ambiguity and the fact that this route hides completely behind the three largest Fir trees has kept Jungle Jive a hidden classic. Possibly one the better stem routes at the Forks, Jungle Jive climbs a rememberable twin seem elevator shaft. Do some laps on D.D. and get your butt muscle...[more] Browse More Classics in Arizona

Anybody have any info about the route to the right of Aqualung. I followed Ti on it a few years back and remember it being thin, thin with a wierd roof move past a bolt. 5.12 range perhaps?
