Description

This is an excellent problem for the grade. Sit start in the sloping crack. Smear the left foot and push on a good crystal with the right foot. Pull up and reach around way left for a really good hold. Reposition the body and slap higher up on the sloping crack with the right hand. Heal hook in the crack and bump the right hand to a good crimp. Move the left hand to a good crimp consisting of a row of crystals. Make sure to get the thumb catch. Then reach really high to a right hand crimp also consisting of crystals. High step with the right foot and then finish up on a tricky slab section using small but positive crystals.

Location

Follow the directions to get to Turtle Rock and then the directions to the Full Moon boulder. This problem is on the east side of the boulder (the side facing 16 A).

Protection

Crash Pads. Nice flat landing!

Hey Zach, long time buddy. You should get a hold of McNabb or Caleb. They know iron mt really well. Keep heading deeper in and you find "knife in a gun fight" V7 and some really highball V3's. good luck, lets climb sometime Jul 6, 2009
