OMG, Lunar Leap! Once established on the ledge system (left of Rawl Drive, etc), get psyched, take a deep breath and leap for the jug! Mantle over but beware, "we've only just begun!"

Treacly slab climbing with mild runouts that seem big finish off the crux pitch.

Wander to the top of the dome...enjoy the view...be sure to remember AYBABTU!


Left of Rawl Drive, out the crazy short overhanging band. Wander up ever steepening slabs to the obvious belay ledge. Get ready to jump...After that pitch, meander to the top of Lembert. Work down the easy side until you can join up with 120 or flip around the backside, one of the most mellow descents in TM!


Thin rack, draws. A + ape index surely doesn't hurt. Nor a good vert.

Definitely felt 10a above the mantle. Pretty thin.

The mantle after the dyno felt tricky. The crux was definitely the slab moves above the last bolt on pitch 2.
