Locking Down on Eclipse

Description 

Just left of the classic Moonstone. Fantastic moves! Start practically lying down with a good flake for the left hand, a crimp for the right, and a left heel hook; make hard moves to a left undercling with thumb catch, then fall into a right sidepull and throw to the lip. The original line here was Leapfrog (V1) which started on the lip by stepping off the boulder behind.

Location 

On the Moonstone Boulder just left of the Moonstone.

Protection 

Two pads are ideal.

Always loved the moves on this one. Burly, but once you get to know it it is a good problem to throw into a circuit.

Just a reference point that New Moon rings in around V9/10 and is the link up between eclipse and moonstone, starting on eclipse and making a very hard crux jump over to Moonstone and finishing up the rest of moon.
