I 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 to bolt belay on top of big block.
Invited Jim Shimberg, to lead the second pitch. Jim rope dolled it, andled a magnificent endurance lead. On two pitches, Jim drilled a dozen holes,  Bravo, Jim.
We went together, and didn't do any 5.12. The third pitch (5-8), goes to the base of Moon Shadow. Bolt belay and dubious rock, foot ledge.


Right of Vertigo section and left of North Southwest, look for the large arch 50ft up.


Many old bolts, Trad. gear mostly stoppers. Rappel station below Moon Shadow.
