Description:

Climb the vertical crack at the right side of the wall. Once you hit the roof, you have to make a traverse left then up to the ledge. This is no wimpy 5.7.

4 out of 5 stars Fun route with easy pro

This was my first climb at Moore's Wall. The rock quality is great and the route took cams, stoppers and tricams well. It wasnt an especially difficult route but the crack, for me, was more difficult than the traverse. With plenty of feet and horizontal cracks, I thought the traverse was easier to protect than some other ascent notes have mentioned. The top was easy to protect without using the rap rings due to the abundance of solid anchor trees.

3 out of 5 stars run out traverse

I thought the traverse at top was a little runout but fine. Crack section is fun for a few feet.
