Ground up FA attempt in sunny conditions!

Description 

A wide crack that takes wide gear. This obvious line climbs surprisingly like a face route with some crack technique required towards the top. There are some questionable flakes in the middle which are cause for a heads up to your belayer. A single bolt protects a short rotten section as you move up and left to the final crack. Chain anchors atop a great stance.

Location 

On the climber's left side of the Moon, up the gully 20 feet just past a maple tree. Look for the obvious crack.

Protection 

2-5", doubles 3-4", slings for extending gear.
