Description

Blue Sky features very technical climbing on mostly vertical to slightly overhanging walls with small pockets and edges. Routes range from the classic 5.9, Dragonfly, to the enduro-crimping test piece, Steamroller, 13c/d.

Getting There

To get here drive about 20 miles down the canyon to The lodge and then about another half a mile to a mile and park just past the first bridge where there is a pull out on the right, walk across the road and the trail is there, walk up the hill past several good sized boulders for about 7-8 minutes, Left like half a minute is Lord of the flies wall and right is Indecent Exposure.

First time at Blue Sky this last weekend. I found the routes that I climbed very sustained, which is great. Get up there around noon and you'll have sunshine the rest of the day. It's also a great place if you don't like having to clip a bolt every 5 feet as I found the placements a bit more runout than other areas of the canyon, which is also great.

Can't wait to go back. Apr 30, 2013
