Pitch 4: Why settle for the fun 5.7 face to the right when you can continue the classic wideness in the 5.9 slot to the left?

Comments: This striking pitch is not only great fun, but features a cooling ventilation system that begins about 30 or 40 feet up. The sketchy block/flake is definitely not sound, but can be thoughtfully avoided. The climb is a longer-than-you-think walk left from where the approach trail reaches the cliff.

Comments: Climbed this Oct 7 and found it to be a fun way to the top of Juniper Peak. Great views all day of Rainbow Wall. Casual, well-protected face-climbing all the way up. I found the crux to be the last move of the third-class exit above the climb. An exposed step while humping a thorny oak shrub with my rope and slings snagged behind me on tenacious branches had me laughing.

Do not make the mistake of thinking you can just walk off to the north. From the descriptions I had read I was expecting a m... more >>

Comments: Yeah, kinda burly start, much harder than anything on Fold Out. Good protection though. After that, first pitch is sustained solid 5.7. Ignore the wad of slings and belay on top of the block they hang from. Then do pitch 2, which has a fun 5.6 finger crack and then I ran it out (5.5?) up a yellow knobby face to the top, left of the Fold Out finish. Just under 60 meters to belay from the little tree on the top of the Necromancer. Fun climbing.

Descent: Single 60m rope. From top of the formation... more >>

Comments: 2nd pitch is well worth doing. Be sure to protect the initial traverse for the follower, but plenty of jugs everywhere. Nothing on this route felt harder than 5.7. A lot easier than Hop Route on the left side of the wall. 2nd pitch is a full 60 meters to good belay location just below the summit boulder.

Comments: Climbed on November 10. Fantastic, weird climb. Feels kind of hairball for the leader at times, but is just a hike, sometimes literally, for the follower. We simulclimbed the route in 4 blocks, in about two hours. Seems like the sensible way. Rappelling takes as long as climbing this one, as the ropes don't toss very far on the slab. We didn't find any anchors on top of the formation (but did find Paul's little summit register), so we downclimbed top pitch. How did we miss them??? Beautiful area... more >>

Comments: Great rock, great protection, great views, great comraderie.... Pulling into the 5.9+ dark dihedral on Pitch 6 (middle of pitch 5 for us) was the crux for me. It is steep, awkward, and generally swarthy. The leader faces a bad ledge fall here, but on toprope I harmlessly and repeatedly bounced off the ledge as I morphed into a dog while trying to climb this corner. I kept falling even though I was yarding on a jammed hex. The climbing is sustained, with 5 distinct sections of great jamming.

Comments: Making the move to this stance was the crux of the climb for me. I found pulling into the dihedral from the large sloping ledge at its base to be seriously awkward. You have to face the right wall to use the crack in the corner, which is slightly past vertical with nothing for feet. The black left wall is pretty smooth. I kept falling back onto the ledge as I struggled with this move. On toprope. Like the caption says, this dihedral is good and hard.
