BETA PHOTO: Moose Du Jour (& the Trunk to the left)

Description 

Start a few feet right of the large blocks of "The Trunk" and climb up to a right-leaning flake. Up the flake, step left at its top. Make interesting foot moves left (bolt) and up to a ledge. Move right on the obvious crack (piton, nut or TCU a foot beyond) then up at the end (May be the crux for shorter climbers) and left to a good ledge.
Perplexing moves past 2 bolts (crux...5.9+?) lead to the anchors. 80-90 ft 5.9 / 5.9+? Final move may also be crux for shorter climbers.

Protection 

Small-Med nuts or similar TCUs

Real nice route, makes one pause in a few sections. A few spinners on the route, but well protected. Really fun finish on beautiful black volcanic veins...crimpy and fun!
