This is me (Matt Budd) on the crux of Crescent Moo...


This starts vertical and slowly starts to overhang to a tricky sequential roof. The roof is the crux with bumping crimps. This climb requires focused power. No rests but it's short.


6th climb from the right. In this area climbers have chalked in the rating below the climb.

The crux of this climb is clipping the last bolt. The best way to get the last bolt is to climb past the bolt and crimps to a relatively solid hold.

As of 6/12, the bolt below the crux is pulling out. Use caution! The hanger is a half inch away from the wall and the stud wiggles.

Ditto for the above...I took several whips at the crux, and noticed only during cleaning that the bolt is coming out. Glad it stayed in. Fun route otherwise.
