Nice!

Moonlight Buttress really seems like this generations 'Astroman,' a cutting edge free climb that the super climbers travel all around the world to test themselves on. Or maybe it is it's own thing, and we'll compare other classic long thin cracks as "moonlight-like" or something.

Such a unique feature and incredible climbing, just unreal. After spending the morning pumping 12' splitters at woodson I kind of wish I spent spring elsewhere....

When you get to that upper finger crack splitter on the Moonlight buttress you'll know why you came there .....

Cool video - but god, what awful editing. The narration doesn't match the footage, and both skip randomly all over the route.

Nice TR! Moonlight is such a great free climbing line. I was psyched to try to free climb it many years after I first went to Zion aid climbing. Unfortunately, I did not get the clean ascent. Your TR gets me psyched to go back for another try! Very cool.
