Description 

A short, two bolt face to chains. Good warm up or beginner climb. The face moves are much harder and you clip with a right hand. The crack is somewhat interesting and you clip with the left.


Location 

In the Lower Jungle to the right of "Homo cragus" and about mid way through the Lower Jungle. This is the last route on the short cliff, a.k.a. "The Pygmy Wall." Easy to find because it is so short...set up to teach kids how to lead.


Protection 

Quick draws to chains.

This route is a good place to train someone to lead and clip correctly.
