Description:

A beautiful climb that goes up a low angle slab just to the right of Sunset Slab. Start about 100 yards right of Rising Moons, just left of a small gully with some bushes leading up it. If you reach a large gully system that involves navigation across it, you've gone to far. Start below a small roof with a clean face split by a seam above. Pitch 1: Climb the face to a huge ledge- 5.3, 110'. Pitch 2: Go straight up, following the path of least resistance to a big ledge with bushes on it. Belay on the left side. 5.3, 120'. Pitch 3: Step left, then climb upwards until a clean left facing dihedral comes into view. Belay at the base. 5.4, 180'. Pitch 4: Climb the dihedral to a small stance, 5.6, 110' Pitch 5: Step right and climb up to above the roof on your left, then step left onto the face above. Continue straight up until a small ledge on the right comes into view. 5.4, 190' Pitch 6: Climb straight up for a full length of rope. 5.3, 200' Pitch 7: Climb the obvious crack in the dihedral above. 70', 5.7

Descent Options:

Descend by heading west up the gully at the top until it is possible to step onto the ridge on your left. From here, traverse toward the headwall above, gaining the next gully over. Turn left and head back the way you came, following the gully to a large

5 out of 5 stars Great Climb, Rough Rap

First pitch was easy, run it out; second pitch was mediocre quality; third pitch was a blast; fourth pitch was money, crack was easy to sew up, get your balls and hit the arrete solo; fifth pitch is fun, stay right, manky anchor; sixth pitch is long, real long, slung a chickenhead for an anchor; seventh is the crack, don't lieback it, it'll kill you; to rappel start third classing up following good cairns and find the "airy traverse" not as bad as it looks but committing, find the bolted anchors by the big pine tree, 1st rap one full 70, then a double seventy with 50 feet of downclimbing, then another fullll double seventy to the main ledge where there is a walkoff to the right towards the start of the route.

5 out of 5 stars A really fun easy climb. I lead pitch 2 and 6, Jay lead the others.

The down rappel/down climb is another story. Maybe there is a better way than the way we came down.

4 out of 5 stars Pretty chilly when the sun goes over the mountain

Climbed with Jay and Padraic. My favorite pitch was the "easier than it looks" 5.6 dihedral. I forgot which pitch it is.
