This route is located on the backside of Turkey Foot Crack. If you climb Turkey Foot Crack to the top and walk off, you will see the route to your right. Moot Point faces east and can be a cold climb in the winter. Start with nice hand jams for about the first ten feet, the crack gets wider as you go. Make your way up to a good rest in a wide pod. From the pod, climb offwidth to the summit. Rap down on nice new bolts.


#2-6, blue Big Bro.

This is a fun climb, too bad it is so hard to get to. You place the Big Bro at the top and you can place small finger-sized cams below to back it up. The anchor bolts look great! You can place a #1 Camalot as your first piece.

A sweet route, fun movement. The exit was not that hard but was a bit heady for me as you are making some committing moves above a Big Bro. It is a solid placement, but those things never feel as good as a giant cam.

This is a nice offwidth gem! Features inside and outside the crack make it quite doable. I found a few smaller placements along the way and near the top to supplement all the big gear. A blue Big Bro was barely expanded, so a green might work too. Thank you to the setters of the anchor bolts at the top.
