BETA PHOTO: Photo/topo for Moonshine Dome - East Face, Holcomb...


Climb the splitter over the bulge. I believe this is the crux. Once over the bulge continue along the crack using positive face holds.


Descent: walk off to climber's right


Gear to 3"

Bolted anchors on top of the dome.

Unlikely to go at the same grade if at the start you jam the overhanging crack instead of the positive face holds on the flake to crack's left.
