Description

Jaganath means "lord of the universe". If you can complete this bloc, you may feel that way. This problem is the king line in all of Governor Stables. During the yearly competitions in the early and mid 2000's, this was a toprope. If any boulder problem deserved an "R" rating, it is this one. Jaganath is one of the most intimidating moderate problems I have seen on diabase, even including the massive boulders at Haycock.

Jaganath climbs the diagonal shallow finger crack in the center of the downstream side of the huge boulder that shares its name. Negotiate the blank bottom of the hanging, ever-so-slightly slabby face and pull into the shallow tips crack using crimpy flakes. Navigate up this crack type feature which climbs more like a face climb than a crack to a very high top out.

I imagine Jaganath has seen few ground-up, no top rope inspection ascents. I think this is the proudest problem at Governor Stables. If you try this climb, remember there is much more to this one than just the V grade.

Location

Jaganath is the diagonal shallow crack facing downstream on the boulder in the Juggernaut area that is nearest to the Stables entrance.

Protection

Many pads and spotters. The ground slopes away and down from the face, making a fall even more treacherous than the height. If you absolutely must, use a rope to suss the moves, but I consider this heresy.
