This is rumored to be the best climb at the sanctuary. The climb tackles the obvious seam on a crescent shaped wall, getting progressively steeper toward the top of the climb. The crux for me was a long move near the last bolt, although maybe the pump had something to do with this being the hard part. The route seems to pack quite a punch for it's relatively short length.

This is rated 5.12b in the squamish select book, but definitely felt harder to me. Some of the holds seemed a bit crumbly, so I would not rule out the possibility of broken holds in the past or future.

I am surprised that the guidebook gives this climb 5 stars, especially in squamish, where there are loads of excellent climbs. Fun route, but nowhere near 5 stars in my opinion.


On the far left side of the sanctuary, locate the obvious bolted seam on a wave shaped wall. This is the crescent.
