Description:

Start directly on the small right-facing corner/flake and head pretty much straight up the face. Reach for a left slanting edge the follow decent holds on horizontal edges to the top. Topout can be a bit dirty and mossy for leaders.

Descent Options:

Easy walk off trail. Good TR/Rap anchors.

3 out of 5 stars Gneiss

Just to the right of Jungle Face. Good rock, slightly overhanging. Also a bit pumpy for such a short climb.
