Description 

The tall, north-facing section of the Quartermoon Tower. This part of the wall has some amazing multi-pitch moderates and a somewhat "test piece" in the route, Quarter Inch From Falling.

Facing north, this area of the Quartermoon Tower goes into the shade rather early. So on a hot and sunny day, the north face of the tower is the place to be.

QD's and a full rack will be necessary, as well as a 60 meter rope.


Getting There 

Follow the road south out of the hardpan passing the initial crop of boulders. Pass the Madness Buttress and find a place to park.

A heady, enjoyable jaunt up natural weaknesses in a quartzite tower. Quartermoon follows a broken dihedral, traverses onto a face to a wide ledge, and then continues up a variable-width chimney to a false summit to the west of the true summit (the true summit is easily reached by walking from the false summit).This route was established solo, from the ground up.P1 (5.9, 90') Start in a shallow trough in the corner between the north face of the tower and the east face of a buttres...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
