Mare Frigoris climbs a beautiful formation on the western side of the cirque of the moon. This route is a serious choss endeavor that is purely aesthetic. The bottom of the route follows the obvious leftward diagnol to lower angle territory. After being positioned in the middle of the wall a leftward traversing pitch gains a striking crack system. Upon further inspection this crack system is horrendously loose and lichen covered.
Aside from two "approach pitches" on lower angle terrain in the middle of the wall, every pitch was difficult and dangerous. The crux is the second to last pitch were one pin was placed. The last pitch is 5.11 OW.
Mare Frigoris or "the cold sea" is a region on the Northern hemisphere of the moon that refers to the open air bivy that occured after the ascent.
