New Routing on the MoonStone! Whitney Portal, Lone Pine Ca

Well, nothin' like kicking off the season with a new route, that climbs a 1'200 foot blank buttress. We are currently 600ft off the ground, taking mad screamers and ripping sketchy hooks off the wall, all in the effort of trying to protect the blankness. The climbing has been steep with giant knobs that have to be connected with incredible blank sections in between. Chris, my partner in crime on this one is hanging in there, catching every flight that has been taken as well as every jaw dropping moment. Hats off to his ability to hang in there, on the slow exhausting progress. I'll keep you posted on the project as we start round two. For now "It's a marvelous night for a moon dance"
