Aaron James Parlier. "Moonlight Sonata" ...


I can’t say enough about this line. Big, bold, and beautiful. I put off sending this line for a while due to a lack of pads and spotters. The other weekend I walked down by myself to work on a project and I couldn’t resist it any longer. I was alone, but I worked it piece by piece to make sure the fall was good and the holds were bullet. I ended up climbing it several times because it was so good.

-Sit start low under the enormous, steep overhang at the base. The base on the far left side of the main overhang has a nice obvious chunk.
-Pull up onto the high break and hand overhand across the massive jug lobe for about 10 feet to the end. Heel hook and use the so so jug and small crimp to blast out left to the next rail jug line.
- follow the higher jug line up and left to a jug chunk and follow to the top.
-Its fine to use the thin Yellow Birch tree to help with the top out. It’s there and no one should harm it, so why not make the top a little safer right? Use the tree.
