Jungle Wall is the second route on the wall climbers' right. The first bolt is about 25 feet off the deck but the climbing to get to it is easy. Climb up the wall for about 100 feet on 5.9 terrain until it starts getting thin and you're at the crux. Do some power slabbin for a few moves and catch a good rest.
After the rest you're pretty much in there. Finish up on a little more friable rock and rap from the chains with two 60 meter ropes.
Second route on the climbers' right. Rap with two ropes.
12 draws for the route and 2 for the anchor.
DI at one of the cruxes on this incredible pitch.
Quality position and rock. December 2013.

Spectacular thin moves, bullet black rock. Bring 2 ropes to get off.

Easily one of the best "sport" pitches I have done.

Just plain fun on some of the best rock I've climbed at in RRCNCA (second to the bullet rock of the Dark Shadows area on Mescalito.)
If you happen to own an 80 meter rope you don't need a second rope. With an 80m the leader can be lowered to a the comfy ledge up hill of the start of the route, belay the second up the pitch and lower the second all the way back down to the start of the pitch, pull the rope and walk back down to the base. The bonus here, of course, is the opportunity to get great photos of the second on the route.
I'd think this could be done with Emerald Forest too but I didn't get the chance to try that.
