This route is the harder cousin of the routes on either side, Luna Nascente and Dark Side of the Moon, and every bit as good. Great rock and movement.

Climb up the center of the flowstone tufa and straight up the face. Though the other routes are fairly close, the climbing on this route is distinct and follows the bolts. Continuously challenging and pumpy, with the crux about 3/4 of the way up, this route keeps you pushing all the way to the anchors.


Located on the main climbing face of Moon Hill (see Luna Nascente for a description to get here). Just left of the obvious detached pillar (up the hill and towards the far right of the wall) is a flowstone tufa. This route takes the center line directly above it, just left of Luna Nascente.


Bolts to a 2 bolt fixed chain anchor.
