Desperado is a harder variation to Moonshine, adding sequency moves through the steep blocky in the lower portion of the cliff. The crux may be off the ground, or around bolt 4. It joins Moonshine at the 6th bolt, taking in the exposed and cleanest rock on that route.

Like the other climbs on this cliff, bolts placements were well-thought out, making this a good choice for those looking for their first 5.9.

The face to the right is a 5.11 toprope problem.


2nd bolted climb from the right end of the cliff.


9 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor (shared with Moonshine).
