|I agree, the bottom couple moves are pretty delicate. It's a fun route to lead--too bad it's not 60ft longer!|

|Regarding the finish of Moon Face: There is a large block that sits atop the Split Towers formation. When leading Moon Face one might consider finishing the climb up the center of the block. Your "pro" will be at your feet and it will feel harder and be a bit more committing than the 5.7 grade for the climb. Highly recommend it.|

rating: 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c PG13
Avoiding the right-hand corner makes this a bit harder.
The first piece of pro is a small/micro cam. I'd call this lead PG because of the difficulty placing gear from not-enough-crimps. However the gear is well enough spaced, and bomber, and the crux isn't too far from the ground.
