BETA PHOTO: Pitch 1 ends just before the roof in the middle of...

Description 

A spectacular and very sustained climb with great movement on face and crack. Can be done in one long pitch with good rope management.

P1. 5.10b Climb the initial crack onto a platform. Make slabby moves left to the base of a steep dihedral.

P2. 5.11b Climb the technical dihedral to the roof, traverse right towards a block making sure that your pro has long enough slings to avoid rope-drag. Layback up the very strenuous right-facing dihedral clipping three bolts along the way. Finally, power up the relentless corner crack.

Note that McLane's 2005 book has the route numbering mixed up with Hunter's Moon. Hungry wolf is number 332 on the topo and Hunter's Moon is 231.

Location 

This is near the south end of the wall, before it curves to face south. As you are scrambling uphill towards the base of Man of Leisure, a side trail breaks up and left to head back north. A quick scramble takes you to a little platform below a wide crack.

Protection 

Many small to medium nuts and finger to tight hand cams. A double set to hand size is advisable.

To descend, with double ropes you can rap the route or Man of Leisure, otherwise walk down east and then south.
