Starting into the final arete. March 2009.
This is a nice little Jemez crag that has good rock similar to Los Conchas and Mile Marker 37. This type of rhyolite is dominant throughout most of the Jemez. It is rough on the hands with a gritty texture that is surprisingly solid. The Juno tower is south facing and gets sun most of the day, and is also shaded from trees in many spots. This little area has easy access as it is right off the road.
This area is located to the north side of the road, one tenth of a mile due west of Mile Marker 37. You can park at 37 and walk over on a faint trail on the west end of the crag that goes up and over to Juno Tower.

Be aware that most of the bolt line is consistently to the left of where the actual climbing is, most of the way up. The bolts were placed more to where the rock quality was the best.
