Crux may be getting off the ground... hidden crimpers are delightful as you inch up to the crux, you will know it when you get there. Top 1/3 is slope city... good ledge above.
Just around the Clark Bar corner, the pocked wall
Usually TR'd - Led by Bob Clark on gear, but I don't see where to place any until after the crux...trees at the top for anchors

Years ago we called this climb "Halfmoon" because of the few crescent shaped features that are near the crux.
Great climb but I think it deserves more of an "X" than an "R" if someone wants to lead it.......

I soloed this after only climbing for a year or so (80s), got to the top and said "What the hell did I do that for". Nice climbing, but a TR is recommended
