Ascent Trip ReportThis one leads through the wash in Juniper Canyon in what amounts to a maze of very large boulders. If you are doing a lot of bushwhacking, you are off route. Keep right in the wash when possible, then you will eventually get to a wall/ramp of sandstone above some talus blocks, head right here and wind your way up to Juniper Peak - there is a faint use trail. Some Class 3 climbing on this one, but pretty easy. Met Anji on this hike as she was descending with another group when we were going up.
