Juniper Wall

5.7+, Trad, 100 ft,  Avg: 2.3 from 15 votes
FA: Fritz Wiessner, Betty Woolsey, William House, 1934
Connecticut > Central Valley > Ragged Mountain > Main Cliff


Starting a bit left of Vector, climb a blankish wall to a ramp leading up to a small juniper. This initial section is easy but somewhat hard to protect. Past the tree follow cracks (crux) to the top. The crux is well protected.


This route is just left of Vector and is easily recognized by the juniper.


Standard traprock rack.

[Hide Comment] Found this route to be the normal hard and awkward Ragged 5.7. I was a little nervous at crux but managed without too much trouble. Probably not the best for fledgling 5.7 leaders but a decent route not doubt. Jul 12, 2009

[Hide Comment] Warning! Just before the juniper tree, there's a big, loose block. It's not really obvious but resist the temptation to place pro behind it. See . May 31, 2015
