JJ firing off Moonstone 1998

Description 

Steep! Sit-down start at the obvious jug underneath the boulder on the right side, near the edge of the drop. Steep but positive pulls out the overhang until your feet cut loose, then a dynamic move up to a crescent incut near the lip. Slap the dish over the lip and then don't come off the finishing jugs and you are there.

One of the best problems Groom has to offer.

Location 

Half-way between Leglock Rock and the Wave, facing Leglock Rock.

Protection 

Clean fall on flat hardpack dirt.
