The second furthest climb to the left on Distillery Wall, Moonshine is a long, sustained, single-pitch, vertical face climb. To reach the start of the climb, you actually have to walk up the steep 3rd class slot canyon.


10 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor shared with Seven & Seven and Yards of Ale.

Start from the ground and climb up direct to the first bolt for a stellar (and harder... .10+/.11-) start to this classic route.

It would sure be nice to have an additional bolt below the first bolt if you do as Tallmark suggests and do the direct start. But then again I'm not the boldest person in the world. I wonder what Jay Sell would say about adding a bolt? I'd say the direct start is 11a
