Description

This was the first route put up at Blue Sky, and for good reason. The climbing on the black buttress is superb. If this route were only the 2nd through 4th bolt, I would STILL give it 4 stars.
Begin to the left of a small tree stump and do a semi-hard move to get established. The 2nd bolt looks like a long way away, but it's easy. Plus you want that 2nd bolt high when it comes time to clip the 3rd.... Big pulls on good pockets lead to the sidepull crux move to a mailslot pocket. From there you get a great crimper section leading to a huge rest. From the rest, it's 3 more bolts of easy 5.10. Going to the anchors is a bit runout, but relatively easy.

Protection

7 bolts, closed cold shut anchors
