Some areas require a guide.
Starting pockets rumored to have been chipped out, there is an alternate start that is no harder that does a couple of moves straight in line with the diving board if you need to have an unaltered ascent.
Start on a sloping boulder with hands in the two pockets, pull on and make a big move out the roof to a jug, make sure to keep the landing gear up or you will surely be dragging body parts across the boulder that you started on. Mount the diving board and work out left on the dual rails. At the end of the rails make big crux moves on slopers with heal and toe hooks on the diving board up into a higher section of roof. Eventually gain a jug under the lip, facing right reach over the lip to a hold and work up on holds that could be better.
Stars in the back of the Moonshine Roof on 2, 3 finger pockets one right above the other.
Pads and spotter, there is a step under the top out area so you really want a spot there and you can back slap pretty hard anywhere because of how much weight you can take with your feet.
