This is a sport climbing wall with many moderate lines in the 10-11 range with a 12b and 13a also. These are short lines (average 4-5 bolts), but they have steep and generally sequential techical climbing.
From the visitor center at the South entrance, take the Inner Canyon Trail to the creek bottom. Head up the hill to the NE when you before you get to the power line. The Playground is about 150 yards East of the Juggernaut area.
