See Big Blue…


Climb the LEFT side of Big Blue to first bolt (don’t clip anchor as it will create way too much rope drag) traverse left under small roof/overlap to the base of the big 6” wide drill hole feature (this was a quarry after all). Climb up making LONG reaches on thin 1 tooth holds to get to the ice above (if icy) –or- holster the tools and mantle onto the ledge (if dry) anchors are off to the left.


5-7 Screws for Big Blue then 3 QD’s for bolts
