Description 

This climb is located on a rock face to the right of the start to Streamline. Blue Ribbon is the biggest flow in the center of the wall. Climb the nice flow until it ends at a small broken tree. Finish up the rock section following the crack and corner system placing rock pro to the trees above. Very Fun!

Location 

Park as for Mt. Willard. Walk the tracks and continue past cinema gully for 300 yards to the huge trestle. Go right before the bridge down into the ravine. Walk up the right side of the stream for a 1/4 mile to a fork. Go right and follow the stream for a 100 yards to the ice. There will be rock slabs on the right. Look for the obvious flows in the gully to the right. Blue Ribbon climbs the center of the wall.

This route maybe the climb Candlepin WI4? There was a steeper flow to the left that looked more like a 4 and the ice went to the top. Not sure? If anyone has any info about this area please let me know!
