Blue Falcon route as seen from belay point

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


An easy face up to a fun, mostly hand-sized, irregular crack. The inside of the crack is sharp, so don't wiggle around once you get your hand set.

If only the crack bit were longer...


Left-most route on the wall; obvious crack.


7 bolts, single ring anchors. First two bolts are shared with the line to the right.

I should note that in Tyler King's original list of the Blue Walls routes in the area description this route was listed as a .10c.

If you can hand jam it isn't that hard.
