This route tackles the roof above lizard head. It may seem a bit confusing at first, but after climbing lizard head, walk up the slab up and left. once you reach the L hand sidepull-sloper under the roof, climb directly out the center of the roof on small crimps and slopers. Great challenge on immaculate crimpers and slopers. Boulder problem on a rope. about v6-v7.


above "lizard head" (10d) and "way hard rock climbing betty", (10d).

Nice addition. This isn't even in the Bigfoot guide.
A way to make this thing feel like a true sustained 13 is to start on the thin face to the left of Way Hard Rock Climbin' Betty and to the right of the 10b soil line, but watch out for the boulder behind you at the start!
Contrived, but it's a solid V5 sequence that leads the the ledge and rest before the roof.
So many possibilities at Moonstone. Gotta love it.
