Topping out on left mixed finish of Big Blue. Phot...

Location 

See Big Blue…

Description 

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.

Protection 

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