See Big Blue...


Climb the RIGHT –or- LEFT side of Big Blue to first bolt. Go up and slightly left under roof/overlap to horizontal seam with chossy pockets. Make long reaches between one tooth holds to gain the top ice. Sometimes there is a dagger that forms here and you can climb it while clipping the bolts. Top out onto ledge and use the obvious anchor on the left side of the big block up top.


5-7 Screws for Big Blue then 3 QD’s for bolts (use long runner if you want to clip the left anchor bolt)
