Half Moon Rock Rock Climbing
A short roadside crag that surprisingly was just recently developed. Three short, steep, crimpy routes grace this wall. If you are looking for a Pile w/o the stream as we were this last week, this is the place. A little bit of looseness still, but... well you know... it will clean up in time.
Above Storm Mountain Picnic Area, but before the S-curve, you will pass Stratagem, which is at the east end of a black-fenced private piece of land. Less than a minute beyond this is a red dilapidated building on the right, just past this on the left is a large solitary pine tree, right off the road. The cliff behind this tree has three routes.

However, this is where some of the looseness exists. After reaching the top traverse over to the chains. Again, looseness is prevalent on the top of this route. Beware!!! Stay off the arete to make it a harder route. Watch the swing off, if you happen to fall as the seconding climber....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
