A slightly exaggerated, but pleasing move to start...


This is a pumpy, meandering crack/face sport route to chains. The first crack moves are the crux but can be protected by clipping bolts to alternate start straight up to face climbing.


This is the first "sport" route at the base of the primitive trail marked by cairns in the "Upper Jungle." (see topo on front page)


Medium-sized cams are optional. Quick draws and runners to chains.

In my opinion this climb is better than "boris ascends again"

I agree with Pat. Very fun and more true to the grade than "Boris..."
