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.

This is a high quality route this is likely overlooked. Excellent moves that link perfectly. Start directly under the high first bolt and climb straight up using positive holds to gain the large ledge below the first bolt. From here, follow a flake to the 2nd bolt, traverse right hand over hand and then head up to reach the 3rd bolt. A thin section leading to the 4th bolt is the crux. Diagonal up and right along jugs to reach the shuts. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WV
