Description

The trail ends on top of this scenic dome. Breezy, open high, the dome towers over an upland marsh, making the view look similar its satellite image.
Expect to share the vista with plenty of hikers during the day, though fortunately, the belays tend to be a bit too close to the edge for the nontechnical crowd.
Since the approach reaches the top of the cliffs, these are perhaps best done as top-managed belays. Those wishing to lead the routes must do a double-rope rappel, finagle a single rope rappel (good luck!), or bushwhack in from the west (another good luck to that method).
The slab has several "overlaps", overhanging exfoliation scars, which often define the difficult parts of routes here. These are interspersed with long sections of runout slab.
Be very cautious about rope management, as there are often loose rocks lying tenuously on the slabs, and the overlaps often have sharp edges that may cut a rope during an otherwise-minor fall.

Getting There

Hike to the end of the Moxham Mtn. trail, about 2.5 miles.
