Follow the obvious right leaning crack up the short face making use of the sharp pockets and other features to the right. Interesting rock with great holds seemingly molded to the human hand at times.

This is a really fun climb, just wished it was longer. Could be a high ball (I would suspect it going at around V1/2 if you stuck to the crack), but the landing is a slab that goes for about 15 feet down hill, would be sketchy.


Follow the trail to the right of "Harvest Moon" up the hill. After a minute or so look up left and there is a large boulder, the route is easy to spot.


Small cams, or crash pad.

That's an old boulder/TR problem. I have no idea of its history, but folks have climbed it on and off for years.

Thanks for the quick response haha, I expected someone to comment on this right away. I kind of figured it had been bouldered, I wouldn't want to do it, the fall would suck.
