|The Blues Cliff
Starts with a flake and knobs left of the start to Black Cat Bone. A steep start leads to lower angle climbing to a corner. Climb the discontinuous finger crack in the corner past *ahem* 3 or 4 bolts to a roof. Turn the crux roof (.12) to steeper climbing above on jugs. You can catch some good air on this one in a couple of places if you fall! Stellar route; the bolted crack climbing on this one isn't quite as flagrant as on its neighbor. Easier than other .12c's at the area, so I gave it the more objective '.12' rating.
Located on the left portion of the wall. A 60m rope lowers.
Bolts. Fixed anchors on top.

This route is really fun. Despite it's bolted nature, the dihedral climbing is high quality on beautiful stone and the roof succumbs to good beta and a few gymnastic pulls. No doubt easier than the other .12c I've tried at Index.
