Description 

Long, mild, multi-pitch routes on the more sheltered north-east region of Moon Rock. Currently three lines exist on this less traveled crag with friable rock and shrubbery composing the wall's aesthetic face.
The African Gypsy area is made of two large pillars separated by a black, streaked dihedral. Helmets and a decent attention span are recommended.

A 60 meter rope will do and a large selection of cams and quickdraws will suffice, see individual route descriptions for gear. Rappel the formation or down climb a fairly easy gully to the west.

Getting There 

Follow directions for the entry to White Rocks, from here follow the main road to the most obvious formation know as Moon Rock. Veer right when you encounter the wall and park at the first pullout. Locate the prominent dihedral separated by two large pillars and hike to its base.

Great route climbing the north face of the formation. Usually shaded which makes for pleasant climbing conditions throughout the day.It was bolted on lead, so bolts are at great stances, but it also means that it's a little run out at times. Perfect to do at sunset, and the FA was done under the light of a full moon!P1: The bolt spacing at the beginning of the route makes this the crux. Pull on some thin crimps 3 or 4 feet above the second bolt to gain better holds and the next bolt. I almost mi...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
