Blue Sky Blond, 5.11d

Description 

This route is so freakin' SWEET! A mellow start with big holds leads to small pockets, technical sidepulls and precise foot placements until you arrive at a point where its all one big move after another, after another, after another.

OVERHUNG and PUMPY! Starts mellow and then burns you up quickly the higher you get. The most tasty crux takes place over the last two bolts. Lunge and huck for a huge, weird pocket and toss for a super sick crimper set a chronic angle and pray for the strength to finish.

Get on this thing and get good and light headed!

Location: Upper Danks 

5th climb from the right on the main Danks proper wall. Just to the left of a wide chimney that separates the pillar that The Roach is on from the main wall.

Protection 

bring eight quickdraws. First bolt is way high off the ground.
