Mark on "Moonshine"


Good climbing on great rock. Starts with a few balancy moves passing 2 bolts. More bolts lead up passing a few bulges and a high step crux. This is a good first pitch to Quartermoon.


This route is located on the north face of the Quartermoon Tower just to the left of the chimney/gully start of the route Quartermoon. Look for a couple of bolts to mark the start.


Bolts. 2 bolt anchor with chains.

Yes! Good climbing on good rock. Bolts must have been added since this route was posted. I didn't place a single piece of trad gear. It is all sport, as it conveniently states in James Garret's new West Desert guide book. Thanks James!
