Description 

Crux may be getting off the ground... hidden crimpers are delightful as you inch up to the crux, you will know it when you get there. Top 1/3 is slope city... good ledge above.


Location 

Just around the Clark Bar corner, the pocked wall


Protection 

Usually TR'd - Led by Bob Clark on gear, but I don't see where to place any until after the crux...trees at the top for anchors

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!
