Location 

See Big Blue...


Description 

Climb the RIGHT side of Big Blue for about 50 feet. Look for a small alcove with an overhanging back wall. The first bolt is in here. Traverse directly Right onto slightly overhanging vertical seams and continue up the line of least resistance to the anchors just below the lip.


Protection 

4-5 Screws to start and then 5 Quickdraws for the Mixed finish. NOTE: The anchors are off to the Left a bit and often covered in ice. If itís thick, I recommend topping out on the ledge and using the prominent set of anchors above. Do future parties a favor and chop out the anchors below the lip on the way down.
