Elevation: 10,772 ft
Climbing and access information for this peak is on Pages 288-289 of the book. It is labeled “Jaggle Peak” in the book.
Jaggle Benchmark is a great, seldom-visited summit. This page documents a new route for the peak. USGS Sunset Peak
South Ridge, Class 2
Although I rate this climb as Class 2, the last few feet up the summit block verge on Class 3. See [(A)(2) on Page 289] for access information.
Use your 4WD to get to the end of the Cedarville Canyon Road. Follow the canyon as it meanders west, north, west, and then north. The canyon is filled with obstacles including downed trees, brush, and avalanche debris. Allow a lot of time for the approach. At times, we detoured out of the canyon bottom to follow promising lines but always had to drop down into the canyon. Although difficult, the canyon is stunning and wild. The route steepens at roughly 8,800 feet. Once it turns north at 9,400 feet, the route is obvious and climbs talus slopes. The ridge narrows near the end. The route is on the East Side of Point 10250 and the West Side of the last high point before the summit.
