Description

Overview of routes on Dark Side of the Moon

Dark Side of the Moon is the first crag to the south of Stone Temple. Dark Side of the Moon is a highly featured 150 foot face with amazing chert climbing and a few sections of sculpted grey limestone.

Getting There

From the parking, follow the established trail and after a couple hundred yards, take a right at the trail junction.  Follow the trail to the base of Stone Temple.  Continue up and south along the base of Stone Temple and gain a saddle and flat(ish) region.  This is the base area for Dark Side of the Moon and Sea of Joy.

See the trail map.

The developed crags of Mortal Earth are visible from the parking, see the beta picture.
