Great arete and nubbin adventure. Knobs galore and pockets where they have ripped off all the way up to and interesting crux below the anchor.
Shares same 1st bolt with Screaming Yellow Zonkers...careful lowering off.
The stunning Arete between Screaming Yellow Zonkers and Bad Moon Rising.

there has been some bolt replacement at Mesa Verde and Moons no longer shares the same first bolt with Zonkers.

A beautiful line with great climbing on knobs, pockets and the arete.

We pulled one of the anchor bolts from this climb today, thinking "if it's not to be trusted, than it shouldn't even be here to tempt someone." Actually, it screwed right out. You can use the anchors to the left, for Screaming Yellow Zonkers to rappel.

As of July 21st 2102 both MOP and SYZ each have their own anchor. Moons of Pluto is a smith classic. great moves on a sweet arete, a must do!

I'll never forget this one, spicy and delicate on a gorgeous arete. Steep and with clean falls, a good place to push yourself climbing on small features
