Watch out for barndooring! Fun liebacks in a open book dihedral. "Jungle Book" is pumpy and physical but can be finessed with good fingerlock technique. A very enjoyable crack climb.
Three bolts on top for setting up a toprope. Bring long slings. Thin crack/pin scars. Pro up to 2 1/2" mostly smaller pieces.

Scary lead in soft sandstone. Top-rope is now easy to set up on new bomber bolts with permanent biners. I never get tired of this strenuous lie-backing to a balancy step right into the small cave. Lower off and do it again without rest until you look like popeye!

Sketchy gear! Very physical for the first few moves with a balancey crux. Thank god the one good piece comes right before. I'd put it at 10c/d given the sketch factor. Some nice moves, short though.

First go I barndoored off. 2nd go I ripped the starting left hand crimp off the wall. Total bummer. Hadn't rained for nearly a month when I pulled the hold in late April. Probably still goes but might be slightly harder.
