Description 

Juno Tower is on Vasiliki Ridge, north of the prominent notch, Burgundy Col. As viewed from the west, not too inspiring, but the east side holds one of the gems of the North Cascades, Clean Break.

Getting There 

There are two ways to get there, park at the wine spires pullout just under 4 miles east of Washington Pass and head up the steep trail. Or park at Silver Star creek, 8.5 miles past the pass, and take the nice climbers trail up the east side of the drainage, cross it at 5000' and start the rising, chill bushwhack traverse.

From a nice ledge with a low anchor pin, climb the 'clean break' crux pitch. A sustained thin hand beauty that'll wake you up if the approach didn't already. Nature's coffee.P2 - 5.9 or 5.10a, 75'.
