Bolt From the Blue follows the black water streak ...

Seasonal Raptor Closure 2016 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Climb a tricky bulge at the start (11-) to easy ground and an anchor. Continue on fun jugs for a few bolts until the holds shrink for the obvious crux section. Keep your cool and fight the pump to the upper anchor. Lower with a 70m rope or lower to the first anchor with a 60m and re-thread.

Location 

The obvious black streak high on the Shipwreck Wall.

Surprised that this route doesn't have any comments yet! The 1st pitch is pretty solid 5.11 but only for a couple moves. The anchors are conveniently located on a huge ledge. I took a seat here to ponder the meaning of life. The climbing to the second anchor is great. Really nice holds, great rock quality, fun, engaging moves. Get on this thing!
