THE MOON SHINES BRIGHT 5.9 *** 60’ F (9b)
Begin at the left end of the face left of the prominent detached short arete. Climb directly up to the chains over the top. A steep start with excellent holds leads to an easier middle (highly featured face left of the pack-rat nest) and the high crux.


At the left end of the face left of the prominent short arete.


Fixed - 9 bolts

Thanks Jon, that name comes from a song title by John Renbourn (along with the neighboring route "The Hermit") - the fine British guitarist who died yesterday. Not the usual kind of name I'd choose, but I wanted to commemorate him. The route is stellar, short but vertical to slightly overhanging with some 4 finger pockets that feel almost like limestone features! It also goes right past a huge pack-rat nest filled cave that's probably been used for a few thousand years!

ps - note the more overhanging section to the left.... several great looking lines up that! Mar 28, 2015
