Description

Blue Sky Mining is the first route to the right of Learning to Crawl. The climbing begins up a steep, short wall that is immediately "in your face" with an awkward 5.11 move. With this little unpleasantness out of the way, the route settles down to some fun 5.11 face climbing. Head for the grey roof and block system above for the supremely well protected 5.11d crux. Slip to the right over the roof and jog back left to the face, a clip or so and the anchors.

Two stars for the high quality rock, the continuity, and the climbing moves. The early crux, right off the deck, can be negotiated on some very thin fingers with a small jog left.

Protection

QDs only. This 85 foot route needs 11 or 12 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
