[Tom Thorpe on Walking On The Moon, 3 kb]Gradually increasing difficulties and varied climbing mark out this route as one of Gull Rock's finest. Start around 7m left of the narrow corner at the right side of the slab. 23m. Move up onto foot ledges and take a diagonal line rightwards on positive holds until a move left gains a standing position on a thin flake and foothold, twin pegs. Good sustained moves directly above the pegs lead to the top. © ROCKFAX

Belayed Mike, was about to lead it myself when I spotted a massive rain cloud, so top roped it on the still dangling ab rope to get up quick and recover the gear from the belay
