North America, United States, California–Sierra Nevada, Moro Rock, Pressure Sensitive

Moro Rock, Pressure Sensitive. The massive west face of Moro Rock has a very conspicuous ramp which cuts the wall at mid-height when viewed from Amphitheater Point. This ramp comprises the center portion of this route, climbed by Dick Leversee, Ed Sampson and me in June. We started on steep slabs at the base of the wall, well to the right of the ramp. Five pitches lead to the ramp, and two more lead to a bolt and knob belay near its end. An 85-foot rappel gives access to another ramp and steep cracks leading through a 40-foot roof/corner, which end near a spacious ledge a pitch from the top. The rappel is the only aid on the route (IV 5.10+, A1.)
