Waining Crescent Waning Crescent Direct is the sa...


Waning Crescent is one of the most popular routes on the wall.

It starts on an blocky section that could almost be climbed without hands. The route drastically gets more and more challenging, none the less. After reaching the roof, carefully reach over it and hang on as the foot holds disappear. The routes name is derived from the crux hold the looks like a moon. After hitting this, most people cut right to take a breather on some nice jugs. However, you can make this a burly direct route and go straight up. Either way finishes up on nasty slopers that you'll never be able to tell where the "good" ones are.


Far right side of wall. Starts on the blocky section underneath the small roof.


Waning Crescent can share the same anchor as Eight Ball Corner Pocket.
