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.

From these edges, go straight up the slab using tricky and insecure sequences. The bulge at the top has great moves that could be vicious to the pumped climber....[more] Browse More Classics in SD
