As far as I could figure out, Big Sky continues along the right leaning crack all the way to the right (i.e., Big Sky's line should cross Lady Luck's line a bit lower down and to the right)

Karl, I think your line would work fine. On Big Sky we followed the green line pretty exactly on easy, clean slabs. I think going right lower would trade the slabs for a broken gully.

Thanks for the reply, Larry.
I climbed up to (what I thought was) that point and could not see how to move to the right. After downclimbing back to the crack/ledge/gully, the climbing up the gully & face were clean & easy to get to the long crack (I would call it 5.5R - about the same rating and at least as runout as the slabs on your line). If nothing else, a recommended alternative.
