This was a fun route. It is one of the more exposed and open face routes on McKinley Rock's open southface. It starts out stemming a wide watercrack feature which I thought was easier than it looks (.9 to .10a). From the top of the watercrack I followed the route left following the upper egde of the halfmoon. The climbing here was straight foreword but the bolts are placed just far enough to keep me on the edge (.8). From the belay the climb traverses to the right and then climbs into and through a wide gully like feather that takes you to the top (.10a to .10b). The traverse across seemed blank but the rock has such a coarse texture my feet felt very possitive. The last pitch to the top felt a little sandy but still positive. All in all a fun exposed route that brought back some memories of Tuolumne. The rappel off the south side from the top made for a fun finish.
