P1: 5.7. Scramble up to the grassy ledge in the deep gully between Sea of Joy and Dark Side of the Moon formations. On the right side of the grassy ledge start climbing very featured limestone that is splattered with a generous amount of chert. Fun climbing on big holds leads to chain anchors in a small scoop.

P2: 5.10. Continue up on big holds and eventually the climbing gets steeper and the holds smaller. There is a steep white headwall guarding the chain anchors at the top of pitch 2. Fun crux.


This route follows the prominent continuous blunt buttress on the left side of the Dark Side of the Moon formation.


P1: 12 bolts, chain anchors.
P2: 11 bolts, chain anchors.
Descend in 2 rappels with a single 60 meter rope.
