Work up and right on somewhat polished holds below the roof (crux) and work left under the roof and fire to the top. This route protects well and makes a good first trad lead or beginner climb.
A 5.6 variation if you go right from the roof.
A 5.9 variation if you go stright up through the roof.
Blue Moon is between The Column and The Bulge. Scramble up and left, past the base of The Column to a small flat area with a large roof above it.
Nuts, cams, hexes. Standard top rope setup.

Curiently clioed due to a loose boulder on top. You don't use this boulder for the anchors on this climb but the climb is in it's falling path.
