The Buttress from the road.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 The Buttress from the road.

Note the first false summit above the crescent moon shaped hole. Notice the other, higher one. The higher one is where you will do the tyrolean. The descent is on the side that you see here, below the last saddle.

Rapelling down to tyrolean traverse

Average Rating = 1.00/5 Rapelling down to tyrolean traverse

Steve-o rapping the second to last pitch on CMB. You can see the backside of the detached spire. The tyrolean/rap anchors are just above the person sized hole on the left side of the spire (seen just to the right of Steven's yellow sling).

The Tyrolean traverse on CMB

Average Rating = 0.00/5 The Tyrolean traverse on CMB

Steve-o just finishing the tyrolean. The hanging belay there is pretty tight for two people. You might want to get back up on the spire. Rap down starting here.

A normal adventure for me, tyrolean traverse in the dark off of Crescent moon buttress.

The climb starts at the base on the far right, climbs up and over the arch, down into the saddle back up the face, raps into the saddle again and two more pitches to the summit.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Getting ready for the Approach

It's fun to climb Crescent Moon Buttress in a group. We did it with 4 parties of two. Here we are getting our gear together for the 25 minute approach

The view from the base of the climb

Average Rating = 0.00/5 The view from the base of the climb

Not very exciting...desert all around. Very dry and dusty. You are up pretty high from where you park.

Sandra on P1

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Sandra on P1

Sandra climbing up to the crux on P1. Nice face climbing, the rock had a ton of friction. Hands/feet stick to everything.

Pointy spikes everywhere

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Pointy spikes everywhere

Cacti, needles, pointy things everywhere you walk. I sat on one of these by accident (the descent is pretty harsh), I have many puncture wounds!

Mitch getting ready to jump on the tyrolean traverse. It's not required to get off the climb, but, it sure is fun!
