Moon Walk

Act I: Prologue 


"What's in a name? that which we call a route by any other name would climb as sweet;"

Well of course it would, the appropriately named Moon Walk is just that--an airy defiance of Newton's Law.
While a space suit is not required, you'll feel like you're wearing moon boots when pulling the crux of this cosmic line.

  • Scene I: Starting off on shaky ground, Moon Walk becomes very fun, revealing edge after edge of blocky Gunks style climbing. Follow a line of three generously spaced bolts to gain some very alien terrain.
  • Scene II: Enter CRUX. A comforting rest allows ample time for contemplation of your approaching moon walk. A sequence of far out and bewildering moves (grovel) get you up and left to some friendlier terrain.
  • Scene III: Past the crux, fight the pump and ascend up and slightly left past two or three more bolts to an anchor.

Exeunt.

END SCENE


Act II: Location 


Moon Walk sits just right of Stong Arm with the Lads and is the next route up trail from Earthling. Traveling up and along the base of The Millstone you'll reach a huge pine tree with two large boulders blocking the trail. Climb over these boulders to regain the trail and reach the base of Moon Walk


Act III: Protection 


Seven or Eight Bolts to a two bolt anchor. Slings are very helpful for the anchor as the bolts are slightly uneven and just above the cliffs rim. At this time, the anchor consists of two bolts, slings, and rap rings.
