A view of the Blue Sky and Indecent Exposure Walls...
The climbing here is overhanging and requires a bit of endurance and power. This area also has the hardest route THE STING(5.13c).
To get here drive about 20 miles down the canyon to The lodge and then about another half a mile to a mile and park just past the first bridge where there is a pull out on the right, walk across the road and the trail is there, walk up the hill past several good sized boulders for about 7-8 minutes, Left like half a minute is Lord of the flies wall and right is Gregs Gully, about 20 minutes
Weather station 7.5 miles from here

Starts in the same spot as Indecent Exposure and heads more straight up instead of traversing right.This route is stupid sick and even more fun than it is challenging. Might be a touch harder in the crux than Indecent Exposure but still has the wild freak factor since it climbs the airy arete to the left.Pull through the pump! Huck for holds! Feel your stomach jump into your throat every time you look down. If there is a line for Indecent Exposure, get on it! If there is no need to wait for Inde...[more] Browse More Classics in SD

First time at Blue Sky this last weekend. I found the routes that I climbed very sustained, which is great. Get up there around noon and you'll have sunshine the rest of the day. It's also a great place if you don't like having to clip a bolt every 5 feet as I found the placements a bit more runout than other areas of the canyon, which is also great.
Can't wait to go back.
