Description 

A route that came to be under the full moon of the Summer Soltice, Moonrise Kingdom is a powerful love story about thin cracks, thinner protection, and fierce boulder problems that, for once, may favor the short.

Start Moonrise Kingdom on unprotectable terrain to a stance for your first piece 18ft off the ground (V3+ R). After finding tiny pro move under the shield. Place your fragile tips just so and then try to pull them off. After some slab campusing move into the steep thin boulder problem to the finish stance on a ledge.

Location 

Found on the right side of the Zebra Face to the right of a large outcove. Look for thin seam on a shield.

Protection 

#000 C3- #2 C4 1-2x
