"OK Moon dog, HIKE!"

This climb has been bolted to honor the life and times of Moon, the dog. Moon was born at 8,000 ft. on March 12, 2000 to Mammoth Dog Teams under head dog-driver Jim Quimet. I ran dogs with Moonie running upper team for me for 3 seasons. Moon moved to New Jersey with me so I could get a Biology degree and then she lived in Rhode Island, California, and Nevada joining me on many rock climbs, many newly bolted climbs, skiing, surfing, and being my best friend before she departed us on April 13, 2013.

For a time, she was the best dog alive, typified by her "I will never give up, I will never stop" attitude, and I bolted this climb in her memory with her uncle Dusten, and the help of her uncle Mike :-) We love you Moon!!

Roadside chocolatey goodness



The route begins on black hangars at a short scoop/ overhang in very dark, varnished rock immediately left of "Adventure Guppies". A slick sequence of overhanging 5.9 moves through the first 4 bolts gives way to enjoyable climbing on the chocolatiest rock in town before another balancy-crux prior to the anchor.
