|c. Moe (closure) to Harvest Moon
1. Go up the chimney, move left on the narrow ledge, and climb the face (crux) past two large horizontals and a large tree Continue up and right on easy ground, move right around a nose, then belay at the tree above. 5.8, 90 feet.
2. Go straight up from the belay to a ledge below a left-facing corner. Swing out on jugs (crux) then up and right to a belay tree. 5.9 (5.6 in the 1972 guide), 60 feet.
The first pitch up to the tree is a short, pleasant 5.8. The protection on the second pitch could be better, but if you look around and think creatively, you should be safe.
Pretty exciting crux move; too bad the rest of the pitch is mediocre, at best.
About 50-60 feet right of Easter Time Too; you will see the chimney (which is formed by a huge detached block) and the narrow ledge (This is about 25 feet up and there is a small tree near its left end).
Standard 'Gunks rack.

Did the link up InterRiah this weekend. It was superb. The first pitch of Inernational Harvesters had a much better finish to the first pitch, but the second pitch of Zachariah was fantastic. Even the lichen covered rock leading up to the roof finish was fun climbing. And you can't really ask for better gear.
