Description [Suggest Change]

The Moon has some of the better rock at the Big Waters, yields some fantastic problems and has loads of quiet.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

There is an approach trail on the map.. Use the very prominent Haycock Point about 1.5 miles north of the road as your bearing. Take a left on the small dirt road ¼ of a mile past the creek crossing. Because it is an ATV use area the road can be a little difficult to follow due to tracks going in every direction. As of 6-2-18 they have improved the road out to the moon and a high clearance vehicle is no longer necessary to cross the wash. The improved road will get you to within 1/4 mile of the boulders and then you will need to take a fork to the right which will put you in some soft shale that is 4x4ish.  If you know soft stuff you can throttle your way through it driving fast and taking chances but to be safe you may want to park it and walk the 400 yards.  I make it easily in my wife's 4x4 Honda Pilot. Throw your tent out and camp if you desire..
