Yup it's blue!

Description 

This Route climbs the obvious blue streak up left side of Grasshopper Wall. Solid movement on small edges and pockets throughout the route. The crux move involves a deadpoint to a small edge. Many people move right after the crux to holds shared with Dances with Cows, which eases the finish a bit. An amazing route on BLUE stone!!

Location 

Two routes left of Esplanada

Protection 

10 bolts and a sport anchor

Probably the best limestone route I have ever tried and certainly the best route on my first trip to Ten Sleep. The rock is perfect and the moves are aesthetic and rewarding. This route flows really well and the moves just keep on coming. Some holds are a little sharp but not painful, just grippy. Lots of sequences in the V4-V5 range separated by poor rests compose the majority of this route. Felt less desperate overall than Esplanada.
When I come back, I will try to send this thing.
