Description 

The Blue Marble Wall is the first story of the 4 Stories Rock. There are some 36 routes on this wall. They are 18 meters or less in length. All the climbs can be accessed from the via ferrata above on #2 ledge if one wants to set up a top rope. The via ferrata is best accessed from the right (west end of the wall). We suggest wearing a harness and clipping to the cable with 2 long draws when traversing the via ferrata. All the routes have ramhorn open coldshuts for top anchors and are represented in the topos as "66". Bolts may or may not be shown on the topos. For a more accurate weather forecast see link below.

The routes are numbered and depicted in 4 topo map forms from left to right. These schematics appear here as picture posts and will need enlarging to view. The numbered routes are also given their names and other data in written format presented as photos. NOAA gridpoint forecast
