Moon Face is the face on the northeast portion of Split Tower. Climb the face using delicate moves to get off the ground. Throw some pro in the crack and continue higher to easier terrain.


Small to medium stoppers or cams

I agree, the bottom couple moves are pretty delicate. It's a fun route to lead--too bad it's not 60ft longer!

Regarding the finish of Moon Face: There is a large block that sits atop the Split Towers formation. When leading Moon Face one might consider finishing the climb up the center of the block. Your "pro" will be at your feet and it will feel harder and be a bit more committing than the 5.7 grade for the climb. Highly recommend it.
