Description Suggest change

The upper tier of the moonstone holds the hardest routes the moonstone has to offer. But you need to work for it, approaching the main wall is an objective and this slab lies yet on top of this large slab. There are opportunities for more routes on the upper tier as only a handful have seen an ascent. Great stone and more opportunity for steep climbing than the lower slabs offer. The summit and summit ridge that lie above hold the secret to the moonstones name, it almost appears the rock has been hit with astroids as a plethora of large pools and holes litter the top.

Getting There Suggest change

The upper tier of the Moonstone lies on top of what you drive up to. Approach as for Moonstone Main Wall. You can choose to climb a route on main moonstone and walk to the secondary slab up top (recommended) or hike up lookers left of the main slab on mellow slab with many boulders. Once you top out, the crack project wall is visible and is a relatively flat hike, while Lunar and Sweetwater moose lie up on top of the main slab feature.
