Overview
FA: Brad Quinn, Linus Platt 04/2-5/1992.

Lunar Ecstasy ascends a beautifully varnished wall with a striking crack system up the south face of the Moonlight Buttress formation. Start on Moonlight Buttress. From the top of Pitch 1 there are two options. No. 1: continue straight up the right-facing corner system for one more pitch to reach a large ledge system that connects Lunar and Sheer Lunacy. The second option is to climb the Pitch 2 of Moonlight and instead of continuing up the bolt ladder, step left on the ledge and climb a right-facing V-slot corner for one pitch.

Rack: see topo.
