The rightmost route of the main wall at Moon Hill. It has the same name, unfortunately, as another route left of Apollo and Eclipse.

The guide, as of this writing, has a few question marks as to rating: it felt about as hard as the route 2 to the left, around 6c or 6c+ ... about 11c. Perhaps a harder single move crux, but not as sustained. The rock quality is good, and the climbing is fun.

Climb up to the shared first bolt, and go right, up through good holds until the reachy crux. The feet are bad, and you can find some pretty thin intermediate crimps.


This is the rightmost route on the main face of Moon Hill. Walk behind the obvious detached block/pinacle. Start at the blocky stone in the ground and go up and right.


Bolts to 2 bolt anchor. A chain would be nice here, it currently has webbing with an oldish quicklink and a biner. Not a bad idea to bring backup when you climb to be safe/replace if necessary.
