Lots of lichen!

Description 

Moonstruck is a decent warmup at the far left of the main December Wall. It's a bit dirty and not visually appealing. The crux move is quite hard. Above that are a few lesser cruxes protected with trad gear.

Location 

Walk left from Life After James past the big, left-facing corner (I Promise). After a 100 feet or so, look for a couple of bolts leading into a groove/right-facing corner.

Protection 

A few bolts protect the bottom crux, and another bolt protects a higher move. The first bolt is silly in my opinion, being very low and on 5.1 climbing. Cams from micro to #2/gold Camalot should protect the trad sections.

Dirty and not that sustained, but a few fun moves here and there. Finger to medium-sized gear useful after the bolts run out.
