|La Selva (Jungle Wall)
BETA PHOTO: Main routes on Jungle Wall. Photo taken February, ...
P1: Follow first 2 bolts of Jungle Boy and then angle up and left. It's a long way to that third bolt, so some may want to clip the third bolt of Jungle Boy with a long sling before traversing left. Continue following the bolts thru some neat rock holds. 100 feet 5.8
P2: Continue up (and slightly left) on smaller holds avoiding the vegetation. 90 feet 5.9
P3: A short pitch up reaches the start of a top out point. 60 feet 5.8
From here it seems like there may be a future walk off to the start of a first ascent, but we rapped back down...feeding the rope out as we went to avoid dropping it in anything sharp or prickly.
From the tin shed, follow a trail up and left (some third class at times) until you reach the end of the wall.
10 or so draws for bolts, maybe one long sling.

This is always our first climb every year back at EPC. We start our trip on this climb because it's easy, happy and fun. Great for a party of two, a bit crowded on the belays/anchors for more than 2. This climb used to be at my lead limit, oh so many years ago. Now, it's a joy to climb. It's a great way to get used to EPC rock, friction etc.
Overall: A happy easy lead for a 5.8/5.9 leader.
