Description [Suggest Change]
A high concentration of sport and mixed routes in the 5.6 to 5.10c range. Not very tall or attractive spires but A nice reprieve from the run-outs and head games of many climbs in the needles. The crag is far enough away from the needle's eye parking lot that you shouldn't get any harassment from tourists. Moonlight ridge is separated into three sections: "The Galaxy",Thin Fin" and "The Point/Beside The Point". The only place in The needles where the FA parties went against the ethics of standard ground up practice.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Follow needles highway from sylvan lake to the needles eye parking lot. One can either park here or at one of the small pull-outs just before the parking lot. Quickly gather your gear from your car before you are attacked by tourists and take the trail on the north-western corner of the needle's eye parking lot.
