DescriptionThis route is on the Fantastic Wall and climbs the face to the right of the giant moon-shaped sickle feature. Never very difficult, it wanders up the wall following lines of weakness and avoiding blank sections. More sustained and with less rubble than Moonraker, but otherwise pretty similar climbing.
LocationBegin about 300m left of Moonraker and climb up right of a stepped overhanging corner to start. Above, follow nebulous line of least resistance. If it gets hard you are probably off route!
Bring crampons and ice axe for descent down the gully between this route and Randy Stoltmann Buttress. Also useful for the approach in early season.
