Description 

This is the middle route on the Natural Light Wall. The climb starts by getting to ledge, clipping the first bolt, and then standing there trying to figure out the sequence. Once you get past the first bolt the climb eases off a bit climbing the staircase holds up through the next two bolts. Getting past the last bolt does take an effort, but it's more straight forward than the bottom crux. If you get scared at the top, you can always go out right and still finish out to the top.

The way off the top:
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, climbers right, 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 chains on top.

4 bolts, rap chains on top

Fun climb with an interesting move to clip the first bolt and some thought provoking glances to the next bolt. There is a bolted anchor now at the top of this route.
