This is me (Matt Budd) on the crux of Crescent Moo...


Nice easy climbing with a couple of huge jugs to rest on before the roof. The crux comes at the roof. The last bolt is in your face and hard to clip. It is far easier to clip from above (or skip) if you don't mind the exposure. Bump through sequencey crimps with large committing moves and pull over the roof.


Just left of Lip Venom and right of Plumbers Crack. Towards the far end of the wall.


Bolts to anchors.

Was harder than for me and the two climbers with me than was its 11c friend to the left...maybe we were weary from the other since this is def at our limit.

Got on this with a friend and couldnt even do the thing. Watched another real climber get on it and she said it was not 11c but in the 12 range - she had a tough go on it. Maybe a hold has come off or I'm just lame because this thing is heinous.
