Tom and Gene on VC Corner


A hard start leads to a good sustained finger sized corner followed by a wide lay back and delicate exit.


Up and left of Small Block about 30 meters you will find this left facing corner starting off a ledge.


Standard rack, with some small tcus and/or wires for the start.

No gear above a #2 necessary. One bolt at the wide section. 2 ring bolt anchor. Get your grrr on for the start after which is great crack climbing! To bad there aren't more 11a's in the canyon.

Seems like this climb was named after the approach! You never know what's in the jungle...

Bring a can of gasoline and lighter for the approach. +1 on pulling hard for the start, once you get in the jams things ease up but the first greasy fingerlock is a bit of a tough wake-up call. Excellent climbing above, too bad it isn't longer. Looks like the area saw some pretty massive rockfall over the winter.
