Kemper climbing on Moral Ambiguity.


Following a ramps start this climb follows a broken crack system until it slabs out near the anchors.

With a longer vertical section than it's neighbor to the left, "Spontaneous Conga Line", and just as many giant holds this one is destined to see a lot of traffic.


Just right of "Spontaneous Conga Line"


10 bolts to chain anchors.

Still some loose stuff that will eventually break off, shouldn't effect the climb too much. Overall it was pretty fun and well protected.

Super easy, super fun, great for beginners looking for a fun first outdoor lead. Better for learning lead than Big Black Deck as it doesn't have a traverse but pretty much goes straight up. Also, less potential to hit anything on a wonky fall. Can reach the anchors for Black Deck from the anchors. If you skip all the jugs becomes a bit more interesting but even that isn't too hard since it is so textured.

Goes 100% on gear, safe & straightforward placements (by Lemmon standards). Standard Lemmon rack to 2, offset nuts were great. Glad the bolts are there too as this is a moderate gem and deserves to be climbed by everyone!

I was wondering how long it would be before someone figured out what the name was referencing. Good on you Nick!
