Thanks Matt. Guess we were on the right start after all. How that is 5.8 is beyond me.

Yea, Moore's sort of follows the "average the 10b start with the remaining 5.6/5.7 you end up with 5.8..." I've also heard "when climbing at the Gunks the first 10 feet or so don't count" and the same thinking probably applies here. If you want to feel better about getting crushed on an 8, go up to the Meat Puppet crag on top of Moore's and onsight "Meat Puppet (5.10a)". I'd say it's easier and fairly fun.
