# 1 Dancing in the Moonlight.


Start at the low point under a line of 6 bolts on the south side of the rock.

P1. The first pitch runs along the left side of a shallow water runnel or chimney. The crux is 1/2 way up. From the 6th bolt, walk/climb left to a two chain belay 20 feet away.

P2. Take the next line of 5 bolts to a two chain belay at 100 feet.

P3. Climb the left edge of the summit boulder 25 feet past 2 bolts to a two chain belay. Not visible in photo-see topo.


Start at the lowest part on the south face under a line of 6 bolts.


If done in 3 pitches, 6 draws will do. Belays/rappels from top to bottom 25 feet, 60 feet, 50 feet.

Al – great job on Dancing in the Moonlight! We linked it up with Sparky’s Cooler and had a wonderful time. Afterwards we headed down to Tick Rock and did a bunch of those routes. A fun day! Thanks for your efforts.
