This is an excellent route that climbs through the headwall and huge arch feature on the left side of the Juggernaut. The climb can be characterized by high quality splitter hand and finger cracks in really good stone.

P1: A somewhat mungy start leads to a killer 5.9 hand crack and a good stance with a gear belay.
P2: Step left off the belay. A fun and technical 5.10 finger crack in a left facing corner leads through a small blocky section to a good stance with a gear belay.
P3 : Climb onto the steep headwall through a slot feature and into a 5.10+ finger crack above. Easier climbing leads up and left to a large ledge. Belay on the left hand side of the big ledge with a piton and bolt for an anchor.
P4 : Climb the wild left-hand facing corner past The Keyhole and exit right via a steep 5.10 hand crack. Belay out on the face with a gear anchor.
P5 : Traverse up and right across 5.10 face climbing with natural pro to the first obvious vertical crack, then follow this to the summit.


Climber's left side of the formation - the left hand most line on the wall.

The descent is a quick walk off right. Follow the sandy gully down the west side of the peak and back to the base.


Rack: Single #00, 0, wires. Double .3" - #3 Camalot.
