Welcome to the Jungle topo

Description 

Stay off of this route until the huge block can be cleaned. It is cantilevered in place but I can move it with hand pressure. I will clean it this weekend (4/22-4/24) hopefully. I will post on here when its safe to climb here again. Thanks for the understanding.

Location 

Left side of Jungle cliff. 2nd route from the far left. Shares first bolt with unfinished moderate on the left.

Protection 

9 lead bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with fixed biners for lowering.

There are draws currently hanging on Welcome to the Jungle. I will likely leave them up for a while to encourage people to give it some love. I plan on leaving permadraws on several of the harder to clip bolts. Please give it a go or two and let me know if any of the clips need to be moved or re-organized. Have fun, bring a brush or 2.

Fun route! Lots of bizarre mantling down low yields to steep, juggy bulge climbing up higher. A long pitch, but with many no-hands rests. Pretty accessible at the grade.

I can't recommend this route. While it may clean up eventually the refrigerator sized block mentioned is hollow sounding enough I will probably never climb again. I believe some folks might enjoy but I did not. I like my belayer :).

Hey everyone, heads up I am in the process of cleaning the aforementioned blocks from WttJ. I got one of them off, but the other, much larger block will require some special de-chossing techniques. I will try to get it off of there this weekend hopefully. Best to avoid that part of the cliff until I've had a chance to knock it off. Thanks.

I thought this route was fantastic. Not sure on the progress of removing all of the loose blocks, but I can certainly attest to there being some loose rock about 2/3 of the way up still. I was able to pull through that section without using any of the seemingly fantastic jugs.

Certainly not a climb for anyone who is concerned with the disadvantages of trying newly established routes. This route could become one of many amazing 5.11s that Broughton has to offer after a solid safety sweep and more traffic to clean off the dirt layer.

Kyle Terry and I removed the deathblock on 11/20/16. As of now it is still very dirty were the block used to be.
