Description

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

Getting There

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.  The recently improved 2WD road to The Moon was washed out this summer and the road is back to being a high- clearance/ 4X4 road.  You will encounter the crux section of road about a 100 yards after the turn off Hwy 12.  Once past the wash you will negotiate soft shale.  If you know how to drive in the soft stuff 4x4 is not necessary but may be handy if you are an off road punter. Because it is an ATV use area the road can be a little difficult to follow due to tracks going in every direction. If you get off route, never fear, just drive fast and take chances, you'll be fine. The walk in is not bad at all if you decide to leave your car at the wash.


Dive fast, take chances, you'll be fine.
