BETA PHOTO: The view from the start ledge

Description 

so good!! Its long, unique, flows well, a bit scary, and a total package problem...

Walk around the main face, passing the crooked tree, and walk around and down to the bottom of the main face to the detached blocks base. the problem starts in-between the detached block and the boulder itself on the massive flat shelf/ledge.
start on the low flat ledge and work up (not daubing the detached block behind you) via small hands/crimps to the sweet, deep, crystal filled pocket. from the pocket, reach up and right to more small crimps and then trend left into the long diagonal crack/seam that uses a truly unique slot ontop of a massive tan colored "egg" dropstone. move left into the middle of "Perilune" where you will finish the top out.

Two of the coolest holds you'll ever grab within a a few feet of each other. And a dicey, committing move high over a kinda shitty landing. My favorite problem ever. Thanks for sharing this with me, Aaron.

YES! I thought it was a classic for the park for sure. Perilune was great as well. So glad you were able to check these out!
