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 have rated the climb as Class 2, the last few feet up the summit block verge on Class 3. See Approach (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.

Check out the limestone cliffs!
