BETA PHOTO: The route.

Description 

Blue Lightning begins in a right-facing corner that protects with C3s. From the end of the corner, continue up the bolt-protected technical crux to the technically easier but mental crux of the route: a beautiful, zigzagging, splitter seam that is protected by 2 blue Ballnuts. The seam climbing is only 5.9 but keeps you on your toes.

Protection 

Blue ballnuts through yellow C3 and bolts.
