Description

One of the premiere walls at Blue Sky. The main section houses 6 classic climbs and is flanked by several enjoyable warm-ups. The climbing is typically on small pockets up slightly overhanging, perfect stone.

Getting There

Once at the main trail, walk left for about 2 minutes. You'll pass Turkey Vulture (12c, big bulging black buttress) on your right. The Iron Horse wall is the next obvious shield of stone, with nice open views of the canyon.

My favorite of the Blue Sky walls. The routes here blend technique and power and expose any weakness in either department. The beautiful views and stellar climbing are a combination hard to find, let alone match, anywhere. Jan 2, 2007
