Description 

This is a sunny, secluded 250' cliff with dozens of cracklines on super high-quality BTC granite.

Friends and I have established 13 pitches on the crag, two of them still projects, with room for still more.

I wholly acknowledge the possibility (although unlikely) that folks have climbed here before, so any info about previous activity would be great.


Getting There 

Park in the pullout beneath Nancy's Rock, across the road from Idlewild Dam. Hike up the trail to Nancy's Rock, then veer right around the cliff band and straight up the broad, grassy ridge. There is no trail, nor a good way to describe the details of the approach. My photos of the hillside will be the best tool for finding the crag. 45-60 minute uphill approach.

The route, majorly foreshortened. Starts in the right-hand crack and finishes up the shaded, right-facing corner.

Welcome To The Jungle 5.10 6b 20 VII- E2 5b  CO : Estes Park Valley : ... : Jungle Wall
This is pretty much the central line up the longest and steepest section on the cliff. Two pitches of great crack climbing. Pitch 2 was a little dirty, but not bad at all.This is the only route we did on the crag that I felt like might have been climbed before. Maybe just because it's such a proud, obvious line. I'd love to hear about any previous activity / ascents up here....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

This is the view from the parking lot for Idlewild Dam, across the road from the Nancy's Rock pullout. The pyramid shaped formation left of The Jungle Wall is a good one to keep in mind for bearings while you hike the hillside. The Jungle Wall is out of view for most of the approach, but the pyramid is often visible.

Actually the description should say park in the parking below "Nancy's Rock", not Mary's.

Whoops, thanks for catching that, Allen. I fixed it in the description.

No problem. I just thought the hike from Mary's Bust would be too long. Nice photos by the way. I intend to get up there this spring, try out your routes and put some new ones up as well. Allen

Yeah, the approach from Mary's Bust would be brutal, huh?
By the way, the two new routes up on Skull Rock both seem hard, 11+ at least.
