Brian, crushing the starting moves on Jug-or-Naut

Mountain Project continues to expand with Hiking Project, and we're giving away loads of gear from Arc'Teryx, Superfeet, & Zeal. Check it out!


Follow the steep jugs up steep overhanging rock. A really nice route, crux is the first half of the route, after that, the grade mellows. Fun movement.


Not in the main area of The Balcony, but go right (south) past the lower angle climbs, to the rightmost block. You cant miss the large overhanging cobblestone with chalked jugs and bolts.


5 bolts to anchors.

Stickclipping the first bolt may be a good idea for leaders at their limit. Otherwise climb above the bolt to the huge jug and clip from there, where it's also possible to clip the second as well.

The twin 11s of Jug-or-naut and Rodent Outhouse are pretty similar. If you do one, you might as well do the other. Jug-or-naut is at least a letter grade harder... fewer big jugs to shake out on.
