The Fishbowl Rock Climbing
Great fisheye panoramic shot near the top of Botto...
This wall is the farthest left area at Blue Sky. The main wall is shaded by trees, so it can be cold if you're up there on a sunny winter day. The climbing on the main wall is on good pockets and edges up vertical/slightly overhanging terrain with small bulges near the top. Home to one of the best warm-ups at Blue Sky, Carp 10c.
Once you hit the main trail, keep walking left for approximately 3-5 minutes to reach the crag. You will pass the obvious Iron Horse Wall and continue down across the scree slope. After passing a boulder on your right and stepping over a fallen log, the trail will dump you out at the base of Carp.

Stick clip the first two bolts (up to the one in the black rock) and battle your way up the chossy start, which is actually quite fun once you figure out how to do it. Then climb the easy slab for two more bolts up to the steep headwall. From here it's continuous crimpers for a long time, with 3 distinct cruxs, all on tiny little holds. A new sequence discovered by Jason and Lee drops the grade a bit (bastards), but it's actually more fun than the way I did it.I almost bought the farm while clea...[more] Browse More Classics in SD
