Comments: As of July 3, 2016, Juggernaut has a clean rappel anchor via a bomber hex and nut with stainless steel cable. No need to traverse across the briars to the top of Juggerhead anymore.

Comments: The pins have been replaced. Better still, the bottom two are now in titanium which will last forever. Big thanks to Tim Fisher for donating the pins and and all of the effort to get it done. Enjoy.

Comments: This route is forced. In reality it's a 5.9 that is bolted to try and force you to climb 5.10. The natural, more obvious, more aesthetic feature is to the climber's right of the upper bolts. Twice I pulled over a couple bulges on obvious holds only to find a bolt 6 feet to my left. I ended up skipping 2 bolts and protected one of these sections with a cam.

Comments: Such a pity. This could have been a really classic 1-bolt route and it wouldn't even be R-rated. As it is now, it's just a little route with no jizm left. The anchor situation will be fixed this year. In the meantime, I've left a delta quicklink on the retro bolt that is 18 inches below the retro anchor. Please use it as a backup on the final lower off.

Comments: Route length is closer to a 100' and one can lower to the ground with a 60 meter rope.

Comments: One of the best 5.10s in the park, though it is every bit of 10++. A great sport route, though a small 1/2" cam or so is nice for going to the first bolt. All of the bolts and anchor have been replaced as of January 2016. Enjoy!

Comments: Free soloed on-sight on July 4, 1998 at age 21. Took me a while to commit to the crux but it felt clean once I did. Later that night in the Awhanee Meadows I made out with two girls from Alabama who were rolling on ecstasy. Good times.
