The Moon Wall is an amazing wall with a HUGE slab face, a smaller vertical face, and a smaller back set overhung portion.

The Slab wall steals the show however, with incredible lofty slab climbs that are an uncommon feature for GHSP climbing.

The Moon wall starts out short on the left, and crescendos up and right to a highball mid-wall portion. The wall then tapers back down to the right to the short Crescent Arete. The Moon Slab face has long, top to bottom crack/seams that define individual problems.

Getting There 

Walk down from campsite 57 and find the big slab face.
