Balcony Center

Description 

A must do at Blue Mounds. As the name implies start up the crack and edges below the middle of the "balcony", muscle up on big flat edges. Finish up the tricky center of the balcony roof (crux).

Protection 

Standard Blue Mounds setup, long slings may be helpful but not necessary for this one.
