Description:

sweet overhung route. noticed by an overly-chalked mono b/w the 1st and 2nd bolts, and a huge hole with jugs lining the entire thing. pretty big holds all the way to the top. underclings, big reaches, maybe even a dyno if you;re shorter. lots of fun just left of Jungle Fever (11b)

5 out of 5 stars Torrid Zone

Great moves! I agree that clipping the fourth bolt is the toughest part of the route.

4 out of 5 stars torrid zone

finally came back to do this after working on it a bit last summer. got it 2nd go today, maybe 5 tries overall. kind of wandering in the middle and the crux mostly being trying to clip the 4th bolt.
super fun route

climbing jungle fever and clipping a shoulder-length sling on the fourth bolt eliminates any difficult clip, and doesn't add any danger to a fall from above that bolt.
