Description

More proof that there's nothing boring about easy/moderate climbs at Moore's, Easy Hard makes a nice warm-up at the start of the day or a good wind-down after a hard day of climbing. NOTE: despite the 5.5 rating, this is probably not a good choice for a first trad lead.

Follow a crack system up to face climbing and a small overlap; move right and up the face (crux), then continue past a tree ledge to a big tree in a cave-like nook.

Location

Starts about 20' left of Head Jam. Rap from the large slung tree at the top.

With a 60m rope, end at a gear anchor at the ledge and rap from the slung chockstone above Head Jam.

Protection

Cams and passive pro in the small to medium range; build a gear anchor and/or sling the big tree.
