Description [Suggest Change]
This is a very obscure route. I don't think it even made the topo in Selected Climbs. It climbs much better than it looks from the ground though and is very worthy. Looks slabby, but it is actually quite pumpy at times. I'm posting it here in hopes that someone will climb it and beat back the lichen. I doubt it has seen any traffic lately, so it might need cleaning.
Location [Suggest Change]
Slabby-looking buttress to the right of Fire Wall with some bolts 15' up. Ends at the Hanging Garden.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Bolts, pins, gear. Protects reasonably well, the bolts seem solid. Interestingly, this might be the only route at Moores that you can easily top-rope without leading anything. Used to be my go-to TR solo for training. There is a bomber tree anchor you can access via the Hanging Garden gully. I think you need at least a 70m for TR, maybe 2 ropes.
