Years ago we called this climb "Halfmoon" because of the few crescent shaped features that are near the crux.
Great climb but I think it deserves more of an "X" than an "R" if someone wants to lead it.......

I soloed this after only climbing for a year or so (80s), got to the top and said "What the hell did I do that for". Nice climbing, but a TR is recommended

Awesome technical and sustained face climbing! I wouldn't say this is an absolute classic face climb like Lonesome Dove, but I think it deserves more than 2.9 stars so im giving it 4. I found the crux wasn't right off the ground, to me the crux felt like getting a high left hand into the undercling under the bulge about 1/3 of the way up, which was awkward but fun. Take full advantage of the decent rest about halfway up, I neglected it and fell on the long move to the final sloper on multiple attempts due to the pump. Excellent test of 5.10+ face climbing on slopey crimps, remember to trust your feet in the crux sequence!
