Description

This climb is on the left side of Natural Light Wall. It starts by going left and up the ramp, then making a move or two (5.5ish) to the ledge to clip the first bolt. The route then runs out a bit and takes you up and left through some hueco-ish holds until you're under the second bolt, falling before you clip here would be a bad idea. After you clip, a couple of 5.6 fun crux moves gets you up to the top. Gear anchor (#2 and #3 BD Cams).

If you don't feel comfortable at the grade, top rope it by going up the down climb. It's definitely worth it to do, but it is run out on lead.

Location

Going off the backside is probably the natural instinct, but gets a little tricky. The down climb is easiest by going down the spine/arete directly east and then wrapping around the second crack leading you to the ledge on Nathletic Endeavor and hopping down to the ground.

There is now rap bolts on top.

Protection

2 bolts, rap chains on top

Nice little route with a couple of good moves. The top move seems 5.7ish to me. Nov 14, 2010
