Moonlight sits atop the left slab of Mary's Bust 40 yards north of Tick Rock. From the dirt parking lot at Mary's, look uphill and it pokes up from the top of the left MB slab. South-facing, secluded, Monastery-type rock similar to the MB area.
From Loveland, drive to the mouth of the Big Thompson Canyon. It is 9.4 miles to MB from the Beige siphon tube at the Dam store. Perhaps 1/2 a mile past Waltonia, park in the large pullout south of the MB area. Steep 15-20 minute aerobic approach up the gully adjacent to the parking. When you reach a tall green slab with a tree growing out of a crack, cut back right or north 40 yards. Moonlight looms in front of you 30 feet set back from the main MB face. The crag is 125 feet tall.
