Description:

This is a more led out affair than a lot of the routes here. The first pirch only has three or four bolts for 60m, but the pitches are only 5.5-5.6. This route goes straight up the shallow water trough until directly under the large roof at the top of the wall. First and second pitches are about equal difficulty. Location Drive into Moonstone and park at the cabin. Above the cabin is a wide slab with a long roof system capping the top. Blue Moon follows the shallow water trough in a plumb line slightly left of the right end of this roof system.

3 out of 5 stars fun

Seems a bit runout until you just stop thinking about it. 3 or 4 bolts on first pitch. Seemed same difficulty as Stargazer.
