This line is a slippery little thing. Grab onto the edges and pockets, pull up to the bulge, finagle your way left and up onto the bulge (crux). Hold on for several more clips to the anchors. The route is perhaps worth doing once, but there are plenty of routes of better caliber at Sinks.


Brown Trout is just left of Blue Moon, and a few lines downhill (to the right) of Harvest Moon.


7 bolts to anchors

this route has a no hands rest, a knee-bar clip and then a heel hook clip immediately afterward, followed by thoughtful pocket finger jugs. perhaps this is a route worth doing once, or perhaps it is flippin' sweet route with a top out to picnic ledge over the cave...

just saying...

As of 8/4 there is a wasps' nest a couple bolts after you pull around the arete. You can avoid it by staying left of the bolt line. Fun route!
