Description

This has one pitch of sustained 5.8 moves with good hands. It is solid at the grade and rare for good moderates on this rock. From the comfy belay ledge, Julian pushed a second pitch out 20 feet right on a foot travere then climbed a good 5.10 corner another 30 feet until the climbing became thin and desperate. Any attempt at finishing this line would prove demanding. Trundling is the crux.

Location

Leftmost crack system on the west facing Rough Wall. Ascend curving crack-corner to obvious belay ledge which terraces off to the left (to Waxing Gibbous).

Protection

Mostly #2s and #3s. Small gear for the anchor.

Combining this with the Gibbous and the President makes for a fun, practical way to get back to the car. Aug 7, 2007
