Description

The tall, north-facing section of the Quartermoon Tower. This part of the wall has some amazing multi-pitch moderates and a somewhat "test piece" in the route, Quarter Inch From Falling.

Facing north, this area of the Quartermoon Tower goes into the shade rather early. So on a hot and sunny day, the north face of the tower is the place to be.

QD's and a full rack will be necessary, as well as a 60 meter rope.

Getting There

Follow the road south out of the hardpan passing the initial crop of boulders. Pass the Madness Buttress and find a place to park.
