Description:

Jug up the huge flake system 6 feet left of the Kidspeak corner. Beware loose rock under the roof as you traverse left to you first really good protection, a 2" cam placement. Ride the arete for a move or two, then step right for good gear and continue to the anchor. The crumbly rock under the roof is easy terrain and it's well worth your time and effort to enjoy the headwall above, which is magnificent! This route only gives up enough protection to keep you from getting hurt, but fall potential is long. In other words, Lunar Tunes may be a bad choice for the faint-hearted or fledgling 5.10 leader.

Descent Options:

Lower or rappel from anchor.

Dubious rock leads to an outstanding, thrilling headwall sequence with just enough gear.
