Rock Climbing Photos : Trad : Crescent Moon

Crescent Moon

Crescent Moon

The fifth pitch of Vertigo is the notorious Half Moon Crack, a completely unprotected 5.9R off-width with a 60 foot run-out.
Here Derek opts for the Crescent Moon variation, which ascends to the base of Half Moon then traverses left on thin smears to access a thin corner which leads to a beautiful thin finger crack through a bulge, which eventually opens to hand size. A very comfy, three bolt belay above.
