Josh finishing up the face. March 2009.
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. It has thought provoking movement and leaves you a couple of options to the anchors. This route is a very enjoyable outing and highly recommended.
10 bolts to a 2 bolt Fixe Rap Anchor.

Excellent route! Has a little bit of everything in it. Original way to finish at the top was go left and do some fun balancy moves near the last bolt; an alternate finish and one that gives you some fun air is to exit right at the huecos near the top, pulling directly through the arete - be mindful though as it's easy to skip the last bolt.

Warning--this new route seems to have been well-cleaned but I was able to easily pull off a rock heavier than me. I was a few feet off-route to the right, near the crux halfway up the climb; fortunately the rock landed several feet away from my belayer. Accidentally pulling off the boulder was a lot easier than the climb for me! :)
