One of the premiere walls at Blue Sky. The main section houses 4 classic climbs and is flanked by several enjoyable warm-ups. The climbing is typically on small pockets up slightly overhanging, perfect stone.
Once at the main trail, walk left for about 2 minutes. You'll pass Turkey Vulture (12c, big bulging black buttress) on your right. The Iron Horse wall is the next obvious shield of stone, with nice open views of the canyon.

Small, small, small pockets up the black streak. Tough right off the ground and continuously difficult for 5 bolts. The climbing is not too powerful, but it requires a lot of tenacity. The redpoint crux going to the 4th bolt is a bit of an eye-opener the first time you try it (I have to pull off of those?). Finishes on easier terrain ~ 5.9. I got the FA of this route kind of unexpectedly.... "I'll just go up and try the moves".........[more] Browse More Classics in SD
