BETA PHOTO: The route
A memorial route named for saxaphonist James Moody.
Start in a hand crack and move up through a flare. The upper portion is a little runout but the climbing eases. Belay on a small ledge. You can downclimb to the right or move up and left to join the rappel on 3rd class terrain. Rappel with at least a 60m rope from webbing on a large dead tree. There is an awkward intermediate station for a 50m rope.
This route is located to the west of Mudterm. Locate a white buttress guarded by brush. The crack is located on the right side of the small gully. A good day would include climbing Goods Are Odd as the descent deposits you at the base of the crack.
C4's .3-4, Double 1-3; (a number 8 Titon will preserve the FA style!) A large cam would help for the upper section.
