Description 

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.

Getting There 

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.

Little Viking 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  New Mexico : Jemez Valley Area : Juno Tower
This route travels the obvious line up the south face of Juno Tower. It offers a variety of different moves that beautifully weave its way up this awesome spire. The rock is solid and the climbing is consistent at the grade with the crux move being 5.10c and the rest of the climb is at a sustained 5.10. 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.
