Great route on good rock. Clip a bolt then pull up into a stellar finger crack. Finish on edges with some arete-slapping action. Well protected, but you'll understand the name once you're at the base...
Lower jungle, Distant drum area.
Bolts, thin gear.

Here's another example of a route that you'd probably shake your head at and walk away from in most areas. That's weak. The Jungle attitude dictates that you rack up with small to med nuts and cams up to .5 and fire up the line, tiptoeing up the crack and eventually standing on the giant block while trying to pull the roof.
What's that? The block is loose, you can see behind it and it sports a bunch of chalk Xs? Bah, Roy probably jumped up and down on it and tried to pry it away with a crowbar. That thing is here to stay - at least for a few more freeze-thaw cycles.
Anyway, extract yourself from the roof (stout) and you get to slap your way up another arete to the anchor.
Great funky weird 3-star fun.

Note that the climber's right foot is touching evil! Belayer beware!

Super great; one of my favorites at the Jungle. Finish on the left arete for fun. I think the roof warrants 10.c, but that's staying way left. I got a red C3 for the first semi-blind gear placement.
