This is a variation start to Bucky Blue which passes through an 8-ft overhanging corner. Small wires can be placed high in the crack before attempting the crux moves, which are height dependent (a 6-ft tall climber probably will have no problems). If it were a boulder problem, it would probably be V1+, but since it's higher up and you don't have a fluffy crash pad under you, it takes a bit more concentration.

After the overhang, finish up Bucky Blue.


Located about 30 ft to the right of Bucky Blue under a large overlap.


A single 3/8" bolt (still shiny!) is located on the slab below the overhang. The corner can be protected with small wires or possibly cams, although placing the high piece could be tricky. A gear anchor can be built just above the crux on a nice ledge.
