The cruxes are just off the first bolt and just above the last bolt.


This climb is just left of "Monkey Do" on the arete and creates a direct start to the upper section of "Monkey Do."


Quick draws.

Those Jungle aretes keep on giving!
Fun exposed moves through the first two bolts, short people might have to mantle on the left face if they can't pull the reachy move from the block. The rock on the upper half is the best in all of the Jungle, reminiscent of compact granite. Stretch for that fingerlock!

BTW, if you're into the arete circuit, this would be the training version of Java Man which itself is the baby version of Allelopathy Arete.

Wonderful climb. Very fun going around the arĂȘte after the first bolt. 11a sounds right, but only because of the nearly last move - awkward finger lock pull with sketchy feet to gain a good stance. If it wasn't for this move, then 10b/c seems more like it.
