A classic route. Aside from the stellar pinnacle top of this route, its obvious splitter crack is also a defining aspect of the route. Fun, but stiff and can seem longer or more sustained than it appears from the base. Rarely climbed, this route saw nasty rockfall during its FA (sangre = blood) and to the climbers left of the route EXTREME LOOSENESS still exists, amongst other potential route lines.


Standing under the Gold Gulley (a 3rd/4th class trailed gully past the Goldband that provides top access and walk-down) to the climbers left of the gully a pinnacle topped wall that looks deceivingly short from the base is the Sendero de Sangre Tower. Aside from the top-rope Shangri-La (areas extreme west edge wrapping to the north face of the formation) Sendero is the last established route east to west on the band. Many cliffs (single-pitch) of undeveloped rock are between Sendero and Shangri-La


#00 to 3 inch cams with doubles for #1 and #1.5 sized.

No bolts exist at Moolack, and that will not change as its a Wilderness Protected Area where the local climbing community has embraced Bolt-Less climbing standards

Action photos utilized for Moolack in the NWOR book for the most part were digital photos - for the sake of modern resolution standards in printing.  Unfortunately, a set of amazing early years photos from Karsten Duncan were scantily used.  Being that these are pre- digital photos it dates the ascents to the late 90's/2001,2002...  <br /> <br />Few even realize that more than 2 people were climbing out there during this time...
