More a small cliff than a boulder, the Moon Boulder is home to a number of easy to moderate highball/solos up a clean 20-25' face. Two of the best problems here are Serpentine Ridge (V0- R) and Sea of Tranquility (V1 R). Landings tend to be flat and clear of obstructions but this might be a good place to break out the BIG pad, although at a certain point falling is probably best avoided. An easy downclimb exists off the west (climber's left) side.

Getting There 

Located on the right side of the trail just past the Flash Gordon Boulder and directly behind a stand of four large pine trees.

It's also possible to start this about 10' to the right via a series of balancy flakes and a two finger pocket at about V2 or so. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
