Rock Area Index / Humphrey's Ledge / Rumble In The Jungle (5.10)
Directions:  Hike left along the cliff past Robinson Crusoe. As the trail goes uphill to Wanderlust take a left on a separate trail. The first route you come to is Easy As Pudding Pie. The climb is located 100' left of Yellowjacket and just right of the start of Tree Keys. Look for a tree close to the cliff with keys embedded in the trunk near eye level. There are two bolts on a dark brown slab opposite the tree.
Description: This climb starts up the obvious large left-facing corner on your right.
    Pitch 1: Climb a large left-facing corner, passing a birch tree, to gain a blunt arete. Follow this to a ledge with junip[er bushes. There is one short passage of 5.8 or perhaps 5.9 climbing protected by a small wire nut and small cams. This difficulty can be avoided by a short (3 or 4 foot) detour to the left. 5.8 (60')

    Pitch 2: Climb the easy cracks above the belay and then up the easy vegetated slope until you reach a steep wall. 5.5 (40')

    Pitch 3: Start the final pitch from the left edge of a tree covered ledge. Stand on a rock pillar to start the slightly overhanging wall. There are 4 bolts and a 2-bolt anchor at the top. The leader should also some some small cams (1 inch) or possibly tricams 5.10- (60')

Gear: standard rack, also 2 ropes or a 70m rope if you want to rap from the Let Them Eat Cake rap station on the far right of the ledge at the start of P3
Descent: rappel the route
