DescriptionI started to set the climb up for climbing by myself by doing the beginning roped soloed because near to the start of it there was necessity to placing 2 bolts to get past a practically too smooth to climb ramp. I invited Anders Kressy to climb it with me. I led the first pitch using the bolts for aid (A-0) and then went through the easy arch via a horizontal finger crack. Over the arch a little higher up was the exit rappel station to Vertigo where I belayed Anders up too. We rappelled.
Shortly after that I told Jim Shimberg about the climb and invited him to bolt the second pitch if he wanted to? Jim went for it rope solo I believe and did a magnificent bolting of the climb above Vertigos rappel station for 2 pitches. Bravo Jim.
Soon after that Jim had put the bolts in he invited me too do the climb with him. I led it all at 5-11d(A-0). The next summer it was free climbed by Scott Stevenson at (5-12) past the first pitch bolts. The third pitch is (5-8) ramps bolted and cracks trad gear to the base of Moon Shadow.
