Description

Blue Shadows is a decent route up beautiful and smooth rock. Start up in the corner/trough that is the start of Cheap Whiskey and clip a high first bolt with beige hanger well to the right of the corner crack. Pull the steep move past the bolt and scramble up and left on 4th class terrain to a big ledge. A small or medium cam could possibly protect this scramble but it's easy terrain on good rock.

From the ledge, reach up to clip a bolt and pull up onto the horizontal. Figure out the best way to move, left or right on side pulls, on bullet, smooth faces between good horizontal stances to the anchors just below the big roof above. This route is probably more difficult for shorter climbers.

If you're just getting warmed up by the time you reach the anchor, keep going for four more bolts above into Ned Flies a Stick. This extension is quite fun.

Fun route on great rock. A must do if you are looking for something a little easier at Upper East Fork. Nov 21, 2009
