Moody's Move 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  NV : Red Rock : ... : Mudterm Area
A memorial route named for saxaphonist James Moody. Start in a hand crack and move up through a flare. The upper portion is a little runout but the climbing eases. Belay on a small ledge. You can downclimb to the right or move up and left to join the rappel on 3rd class terrain. Rappel with at least a 60m rope from webbing on a large dead tree. There is an awkward intermediate station for a 50m rope. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
