Sweet layback at the start
The Moon Wall is one of the less traveled areas at the Lower Meadow, but it's home to a few good trad and sport lines. Climbs are listed downstream to upstream.
From the dirt road used to approach the lower meadow, continue walking until you see the gigantic overhang where The Greatest Show and Puppy Chow are located. Follow a trail uphill to the cliff and then continue walking left. After passing the obvious orange arete, Mango Tango, continue past a waterfall. The Moon Wall begins here. Continue along the cliff line to access all Moon Wall climbs. When approaching from the Great Show area, the first route you will come to past the waterfall is Off My Rocker.
