Moose Baby goes up past horizontals, and then up p...

Description 

The east face of Ash Gordon Rock is split by numerous wide cracks/chimneys - but you won't have to like wide cracks to do this route. Located on the smooth face to the left of the wide cracks, with some identifying horizontal cracks in the lower portion of the face.

Face climbing past horizontals, some offering protection, as well as holds, lead to the upper, crux portion of the route, where a tightly bolted sequence of thin edges/crimps up a high-angle slab/face concludes the pitch. Gear belay and walk/scramble off via a number of ways. One star out of five.

Decent climbing right off the trail, on a formation that is typically ignored on the way to something further afield. The rating will change over time as the loose edges and flakes erode further.

Protection 

3 bolts (5/16"), gear to 2.5"
