Description

Facing the Moonstone Slab, behind the cabin, there is an obvious bolt route following the deepest, bright white, water runnel at the left edge of the face. It's further left than anything listed in Lander Rocks.

Don't be deceived by angle of the slab. This is not a "sport route" and requires 2 double rope rap's to descend.

Look for a very high first bolt, next to the runnel, and slab up to it, 2 more bolts will get you to an anchor station, maybe 5.4. It's an optical illusion, but from here, you're about 150' off the ground, needing 2 ropes to descend.

Pitch 2: Continue up the steeper runnel, over more difficult climbing w/ a few more (6) bolts to a 2nd anchor station, maybe 5.7.

2 double rope raps will get you to the ground.

Location

The furthest L route on the Moonstone "Slab" proper.

Protection

Bolts, "a few", double anchors for the rap's.

Hello. My wife (at the time) and I put this route up during the summer of 2002. It is called Stargazer. We rated it 5.6+. I don't generally go around bolting 5.6, but my wife was pregnant at the time and still wanted to climb some easy routes. Wasn't much of that around here at the time. Thus, we created Stargazer. Of course, I drilled it on lead from the ground up. As I recall, I used some hardware store variety un-welded shuts for the anchors atop the 1st and 2nd pitches. I've been meaning to replace those, but have not been back out there in several years. I hope to make it back up there this Summer to do a few things in the Winds and maybe Lankin Dome again. I'll replace those shuts with something better if they are still there. Other than the belay hardware, I used Rawl/Powers 5 pc bolts with either Metoleus or Fixe hangers everywhere else.

We used to spend a fair amount of time out there in Miller Pocket and at the Miller Cabin. Very peaceful area with lots of "adventure" climbing.

Best to keep a low-profile out here, wave to the ranchers, and leave all gates as found.
