Aaron Parlier on Moonlight Sonata


As impressive as it gets. Every time I come down to Moonlight Im psyched and my motivation is recharged. This place is so good...

Moonlight has multiple sweeping, steeply overhung faces at 25 feet off of the ground. It has a low horizontal roof (Diatribe Roof) and a picture perfect fin arete. There are a handful of short boulder problems thrown into the mix with the tall, so if highball isnt your cup of tea than you'll still be more than stoked on the selection of quality bouldering that there is to choose from. Moonlight is also home to one of GHSP hardest problems... White Oleander.

For more info on "Moonlight Sonata" be sure to scope out the problem write up on GHSP Bouldering:
