Start at a left trending thin flake crack. Climb the flake then continue up a steep wall. At the first small tree trend right up a crack system to another tree rap point. 5.8+ steep and hard for the grade.

Descent Options:

Two ropes to rap from top tree. Can scramble around to anchor atop Quaker State, and there is a walk off if you can find it.

4 out of 5 stars First 5.8 at Moores

Very cool flake and crack climbing. Pumped out and fell ~10 feet from point of first pro trying to clean a small nut out of a thin crack. Rope stretch put my toes on the ground, which was a wake up call. A single 70m rope gets you to a ledge on the right from which you can downclimb 10 feet.
