Blue Gramma is more or less the first major cliff (for climbing) in Indian Creek. It doesn't see as much traffic as the "big name" cliffs, but many of the routes are only 50 feet high or so and there are a great many worthwhile 5.9 and 5.10 routes, most of them "unnamed". This was the first wall I visited on my first trip to Indian Creek and it was a perfect intro. In fact the first route I ever did at Indian Creek, an unnamed 5.9+, is still to my mind one of the best I've done. You don't need 8 of every friend size here!
Since it receives less traffic, this crag is a bit harder to find. It's a mile or so before you get to Supercrack buttress, at a good pull-out on the right. Look for a series of clean but comparatively short dihedrals near to the road, maybe 2-3 miles after Newspaper Rock. The approach is quite short as there isn't much of a talus slope.
