This beautiful chunk of Sawtooth granite is the Incredible Hulk's little brother. There are excellent views of the Hulk from the top of Juggy and the profile of The Juggernaut is visible from high on the Hulk. The routes here are roughly five pitches in length and relatively moderate with good stone.

The Juggernaut is very accessible. While its approach is an hour longer than the Hulk's, it is worth the extra little work. The camping is amazing and you will likely have the place to yourself.

Approach Beta

From Twin Lakes, follow the Robinson Creek Trail past Barney Lake. At Barney Lake you get your first view of The Juggernaut. Continue to the junction of Rock Island Pass Trail and Mule Pass Trail. Stay left and take Mule Pass. You immediately cross the creek and head up switchbacks. When the trail begins to descend towards a second creek crossing (approximately 5 minutes), head right up a shallow rocky gully before you cross the creek. Follow cairns as you head towards the north face of The Juggernaut. The routes Arch Rival, Crimson Gem, and Dihedral Route are best approached from the left via 3rd/4th class ledges. The Beckey Route, Irresistible Force, and Hidden Agenda are best approached from the right. Allow 3-3.5 hours.
