Woza Moya follows the rightmost of two prominent corners located on the south face of Crescent Spire. The route begins immediately right of McTech Arete; following broken corners into a large dihedral system. The first two pitches offer fun climbing on quality rock, while the upper pitches were loose and dirty.
The first two pitches join McTech Arete at the 3rd belay, providing a good alternative start to McTech.
P1: Choose your own adventure. Select from a few fist/wide cracks starting at the base of a pillar located immediately up and right of McTech Arete. The leftmost corner offer nice fists to fingers in a corner. Gear belay at a stance below double cracks. 30m. 5.10-
P2: Hands to fingers in double cracks. Pull into a higher dihedral and climb through a fourth-class section. This is where the route meets McTech. Gear belay or bolted anchor. 50m. 5.9
P3: Move up and right into the large dihedral. Follow a corner through a trough and up a hand crack. Gear belay beneath the first roof. 30m. 5.8
P4: Climb cracks in the left wall to pass the roof. Gear belay on the left wall below the final roof. Lots of loose blocks, dirt and vegetation. 30m. 5.9
