Gear to 3" with multiple finger sized pieces for the finishing crack. *Note - the upper crack is very inwardly flaring making solid cam placements difficult. Nuts are a better option for many placements.

Begin as for "Moon Struck" in the funky trough/grove formed between the Moon Struck and Blue Moon pillars. Break right to the top of the "Blue Moon" pillar (optional chain anchor belay here), and finish on the left crack in a right facing corner. The right crack is "Bloody Knuckles" - .10b.

Descent Options:

Rappel from chain anchors at the cliff top.

4 out of 5 stars A lesson in flaring gear placements.

Did this first thing in the morning last weekend and got quite the warm up. Pretty scary thin gear off the top of the "Blue Moon" pillar followed by inwardly flaring cam placements the whole way up. Stoppers were harder to place but much more solid than cams.
