Climber on the right side of Stay Left.


An OK route on OK rock. Nothing wrong with it, but not a destination climb. I felt like it "didn't flow" for whatever that is worth. Climb past 4 bolts on the face (without moving out right to the chimney?) to the anchors. Not terribly great, but not bad.


From the left branch of the approach trail, you first encounter the "triplet" climbs, Sunshine, Moonbeam, and Into the Light. Pass these and Decay's Way (a short crack just past them) and then a Chimney (Top Ropers Route), and reach the next bolted face with some chain anchors above.


4 bolts to a bolt and chain anchor.

This didn't seem as hard to me as Moonbeam, or maybe Moonbeam is just more fun.

Climbed this on top rope since the 1st and 3rd bolts had X's next to them. The hangar on the first bolt was spinning, not sure why the 3rd bolt had an X. Anyways, it climbed really well. I really enjoyed it.
