In Jay's new guide "New Moon" is marked just a bit off to the right. I gave this more direct line a try and its pretty hard. Just throwing it out there as a possible very hard new little face problem for someone to discover and work. Fun fun and short but very worthy.

"New Moon" is one of the most enjoyable little face routes you can get on... on the whole West Bluff. The holds are super cool crimps and edges and they give away to great climbing movement. The moves over the cap stone are a nice burly surprise.
