Description

A great opening on Harvest Moon leads to a romp on the face above. The line follows the right leaning layback for a short bit (a newer 5.10 line keeps heading up and right). Clip a bolt up and left on the face and make the transition back left onto the face. The crux comes here and shortly after you'll be singing praise.

Location

On the curtain of closer to vertical wall to the left of the main Killer Cave, which starts near Blue Moon, Harvest Moon sits in its middle. Uphill from Blue Moon about 30 feet. BM is right of Elmo's Fish (10d) - a bulging face, Firecracker Kid (10a) - a bolted flake to crack, and Sunspot (11d) - a thin face.

Protection

6? bolts to anchors.

Crux was hard! The two finger pocket above the crimp is easy to miss! Didn't send until I found that ninja hold Jun 8, 2012

This is a good climb, however, old school or "sporty" come to mind.

If you blow the third clip, you will be extremely lucky if you don't deck. That bolt should really be a couple feet lower because you get to a decent stance well above the crux, and then for me at least, I have to do one more insecure solid 5.10 move to get to a less good stance to clip it. Another short move to a clipping jug, and clip with the bolt at or below the waist and definite ground fall potential.

The climb has 5 bolts. Not sure if 80 feet is an accurate length, but the climb is neither short, nor long, so probably pretty close. Oct 13, 2016

The boulder problem on this one is great fun. If the climbing was more sustained it would get 4 stars for sure! Jun 12, 2017
