Evening FA.

Description 

A fun romp up sound rock. Stay left at the 4th bolt and blast through the crux, nice holds where you want them. A short but worthy route which can be lengthened by climbing past one more bolt to an anchor hidden on the upper left side of the tower (this extension is an easy way to set up a top rope the steep west face). Route gets morning to midday sun and goes into shade in the afternoon.

Historical note: the first ascensionist smashed his finger with the hammer on the FA, hence the name.

Location 

Route is at the left corner of the Moon just before you get to the west gully. Start on easy terrain to the right and traverse left to the first bolt.

Protection 

6 bolts (8 to upper anchor).
