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.
