I went to Sky Cafe and was disappointed, finding it another example of the star inflation that is rife in Rolofson's new guides. Sky Cafe reminded me of The Cornerstone, a third tier Boulder Canyon sport crag where the average climb quality is about two stars. Rolofson's observation that SC is a windy spot was right on that day, so we decamped after a couple of pitches to the main/lower Sport Park which seemed pretty mega after Sky Cafe.
From the Visor, follow cairns in a shallow trough uphill, eventually diagonaling up and left to SC, the only obvious outcropping. Should take about 10 minutes from the Visor.
Mark Rolofson has an excellent Boulder Canyon Sport & Adventure Climber's Guide, Volume II, The Upper Canyon. Consider it for more details.

A medium nut is optional past 5th bolt. A steep face crux at 1st bolt gains the slab. Move up left on the slab, to a small roof and 4th bolt. Pass the roof by balancing up left to an arete. At 5th bolt, move back right over the roof and up a tricky slab to a moderate corner. Wander up a steep face to finish (text from Rolofson's Upper Canyon guidebook)....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
