|d. Harvest Moon to the End
|A portion of Near Trapps has been closed to climbing MORE INFO >>>|
Climb the thin crack to its top, then go up the face for about 40 feet to the small overhang. There is no distinct line to follow, but the protection is adequate and the climbing is never harder than 5.5. Climb past the overhang to a vertical seam, move up the face above (crux) and belay at the tree.
Slightly left of center on the Williams' wall, the low angle area that is approximately 200 feet past the White Pillar. Start at the obvious 20'-high thin crack.

Just reclimbed the first pitch. Really nice. My 2008 notes in the guidebook indicate the second is great too. The crux is going over the small roof. A nice intro/ refresher for slab climbing for those accustomed to Gunks roofs.

Thought this felt much harder than a 7. I think the crux moves are eaiser if you are tall.

A great climb, it's too bad it took me so long to do this - each pitch is like a totally different climb: pitch 1 is a well protected footwork problem while pitch 2 (5.5) demands an expert eye for route finding through steep broken orange rock and adroit placements behind whatever rock vibrates the least.
