Junction Butte
Junction Butte as viewed under cloudy and cold skies on March 16 2008. I climbed the butte in November 1992 (from Monument Point) and found that it was actually a very interesting climb and so it will be on SP in the near future. Route goes up the center of the face, but is only a class 4 scramble (with a short technical pitch or two) that can be done without a rope.

I climbed Junction Butte in March 2001. It's a fantastic climb and maybe the best view I've ever had. We did it from Grand View Point, the climb down from which is much hairier/exposed than the climb up/down Junction Butte itself. It can also be done via Murphy Hogback trail (technically much easier, but more distance and vertical) or from the White Rim trail.

Yes, sounds like the same route we did. I guess I should change the caption to Grandview Point rather than Monument Point, since that is what the newer maps say.

Anyway, I didn't add the page since I didn't think I had enough photos or remembered the route enough (it's been 22 years now), but if you want to add it, it would make a fine addition to SP.
