Good route. Perhaps it's just the way I'm doing it, but I think the bottom section is 5.9. Easier above. Jun 14, 2007

This climb is incorrectly marked as 'Moon Over Belen' in both current guides.

My guess is that the original 'Moon Over Belen' climb is a chossy trad climb somewhere on the right side of Cattle Call Wall, probably up the left-slanting bushy crack just left of this route. The confusion probably resulted from the original Las Conchas guide having no photos or sketches of Cattle Call wall.

The proper name for the climb was provided by the FA (SB). Apr 14, 2008

It looks awkward and climbs awkward. 5.8 at best. The shorter climb (4 bolts to anchor)just to the left of it, before Cow Pies for Breakfast, is a much better route. Sep 27, 2010

Getting to the first bolt is a little awkward. For me, I like to go left and then work my way back to the bolt. After clipping the first two bolts, the route seems to get easier. May 12, 2016

The right super shut at the top can spin a bit---it is likely worth someone knowing good anchors to take a look at it. Aug 14, 2016
