Rope up 200 feet right of the giant chimney/gash on the left end of the peak. You’ll be below the narrow north face of the peak with a big roof in it halfway up. The upper three quarters of MoJo faces to the west. Pitch 1 faces north and starts in a 30-foot wide-hands crack and then heads up a gully that runs north/south. The top of Pitch 1 breaks slightly left and brings you to a stance at the base of a small roof with a yucca at the base. Climb through the roof and follow that crack system uninterrupted to the northern most summit of Mount Johnson.
Rack: 2 ea .33-4”, 1 ea 5”, nuts, offset nuts (brass and aluminum) are real handy for the crux pitch, 2 60m ropes.
Descent: rap the route with two 60m ropes, or descend the east face Scramble Route. There may be a need to add another rap station between Pitches 3 and 5.
