Description

This enjoyable route climbs the center of Moonshine Dome's south face and goes at a surprisingly moderate grade.

Easy climbing up broken rock (optional gear to 2.5") leads to the first of three bolts which power over a small roof on huge jugs. Higher, easy slab climbing past a possible gear placement (0.04") gains the top and anchors.

Easily done as a sport route with only quickdraws, but if climbing at the grade the additional gear might be nice.

Protection

3 bolts, (optional gear to 2.5"), chain anchor

I have a habit of doing this route almost every time I'm here - and there's always no-one around. Aug 3, 2012

Small cam after the final bolt would be nice if 5.8 is your limit. What a fun climb! Aug 22, 2010

Very do-able without the trad gear but not a bad idea to place. The moves over the roofs are what make this climb! Jun 29, 2007
