Overview and ApproachRidges or Faces, choose your poison; Half Moon provides several attractive choices. The N ridge route starts in a deep cleft and then follows the narrow crest directly to the summit.
Route DescriptionSeven pitches:
The route stays on or near to the West of the ridge-crest. Good belay ledges are spaced as needed, except at the end of the 2nd pitch. While climbing on the West side of the ridge-crest (P6), on dinner plates and knobs, I found a perfectly round hole in the face which enclosed a large thunder egg (couldn't figure out how to place pro there).
