Description

Starting on face holds, New Moon quickly joins up with a right leaning finger crack before you jog out left into the upper part of Firecracker crack about 15-20 feet before the roof. The finger crack gradually widens and the crux is probably some rattly fingers before you start getting thin hand jams. Eventually, the crack widens up and basically ends at a jug. At this point take that louie into Firecracker.

New Moon allows a bypass of the wider areas on Firecracker if your rack is short a bigger piece or two and you're not feeling like a run out. A higher quality start to a classic finish instead of doinking around on more pedestrian climbing is also yielded. Beautiful rock either way. The knowledge that at twilight hundreds of bats pour out of the roof section on Firecracker should comfort bat lovers too. Maybe not when you're cranking at the crux there, however.

Location

Just right of Firecracker on the ledge above and to the right of One Hand Clapping.

Protection

Finger-sized cams - 3" or 4" Camalot. Very well protected with a standard rack that includes a few smaller pieces.

The .5 fingers is the real crux. No gear above a #2 is needed for the linkup. Try not to reach out left to keep it legit. Sep 3, 2015

Thought the roof was still harder than the widening jams. Really fun though! Oct 15, 2014
I figured I would get on this as a way to avoid the wide crack on Firecracker (didn't have anything larger than a #2 camalot) and got the send. It not a gimme but I found it more technical than powerful. Apr 22, 2013
