Josh finishing up the face. March 2009.
This is a nice little Jemez crag composed of the same rhyloite rock as Las Conchas and Area 37. This type of rhyolite is dominant throughout most of the Jemez. It is rough on the hands with a gritty texture that is surprisingly solid. The Juno Tower is south-facing, gets sun most of the day and is also shaded from trees in many spots. This little area has easy access as it is right off the road.
This area is located to the north side of the road, one tenth of a mile due west of Mile Marker 37. Park at the same parking for Area 37, hike up to the Area 37 climbs and continue west on a faint trail on the that goes up and over to Juno Tower. Hike time is about seven minutes from the Area 37 parking.

Be aware that most of the bolt line is consistently to the left of where the actual climbing is, most of the way up. The bolts were placed more to where the rock quality was the best.
