Description

This is a very fun, slightly shorter route, located behind the pinnacle. The climbing is sustained, and with a distinct, powerful crux. Really cool holds and pockets.

Walk behind the pinnacle, and start just left of the block in the ground. The line of bolts is mostly directly behind the pinnacle itself. Good, fun holds up steep terrain leads to a powerful and technical crux, with sustained climbing to the end. Keep moving.

Location

On Moon Hill's main face, walk behind the pinnacle, and start just left of the block in the ground. There are 2 routes directly behind the pinnacle, this is the easier one, on the right (the one of the left goes at 12b). It is the leftmost route of the 3 5.11's in this little mini-area, all are good.

Protection

Bolts to a 2 bolt chain anchor. Watch the bushes on the pinnacle when lowering, there some *really* nasty thorn bushes.
