Description:

Start 30 yards to the right of Rising Moons in a small gulley. Climb the obvious slab upwards for several pitches until forced to jog right onto a red face/arete- follow this to the top.

Descent Options:

Traverse left along the ledge until you come to a rappel station. Descend down via short rappels and 4th class, eventually going skiers right to a ledge with a tree. Two more rappels reaches the ground just east of Rising Moons.

Mediocre Climb. Not difficult at all. We were expecting 5.7 climbing, and we got 5.3 for 1000 feet with one 5.6 move. kinda sad. Should've simul climbed the whole thing.
