Right and round the corner from the Juggernaut crack is an overhanging face with three large juggy rails that beg to be swung on. Low start on a massive flake. This is one of the largest flakes that is solid that I have encountered on diabase rock. Push with your legs (some people will want start swinging and make a few false starts to gain momentum), and huck to the rail above.
Now the business begins. The holds are hard to see and it may be helpful to have someone verbally guide you. Reach up through a small incut flake that accomadates both hands to crimpy seams hidden in the rounded, beach ball like top section of the boulder. Keep feeling around and delicately climb up with your heart in mouth. The landing is flat and is stone as it is the top of the slab below. This problem and Huck Left are part of the original old school B1's, joining Breadloaf Arete and 45 Center Face. Some people may feel sandbagged, but everyone will be challenged.
Steep face on the Juggernaut boulder leading to the rounded top out. The landing is the flat top of the slab boulder with the problems Smiley Face and Pimp Smack on it.
Multiple pads and spotters. An uncontrolled fall from up high could result in a tumble off of the stone terrace.
