A face climb in the finest Devil's Lake tradition, this route climbs a wide face by way of thin crimps and quirky moves.

Locate the wall between Hero's Freight on the left and Chicken Tonight on the right. Start up a lower angle slab until you can get to a stance before the steeper part of the wall. Crank past the steeps and then work up the exposed wall above. All holds on nearby routes are off.

"Full Moon over Baraboo" goes more directly over the roof and perhaps just a tich left, of courese not using holds on "Hero's Fright 5.7". This way may seem hard but at first but as you boost yourself up and lock off a nice hold comes into view.

I do agree that the face above the roof is not a "gimmie".In fact I think this route done this way is harder than "Upper D" which is sort of a bench mark 5.9 for Devils Lake.

I'm very partial to "Full Moon" as it is the only route in Swartling's Book that has a reference to my hometown.Great Name.....overlooked great route at Devils Lake.

Yup. I agree. I'd climbed it with the beta that Full Moon was the face off to the left of the big beefy crack (which is a 5.8?). And, I agree that it is harder this way than Upper D--definitely not as sustained as Upper D, but formidable nonetheless!
