Description 

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.

Getting There 

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.

Start at a tree growing out of a small ledge. Large hueco to the right of the tree about 12 feet up. Climb thin crimps and small holds until you gain a ledge 20 feet up. From the ledge, 40 feet or so of gorgeous crack and friendly holds lead you to more good holds in the form of plated jugs and some face climbing. Head for a notch in the lip of the cliff....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
