Years ago, Tony Lusk said "John you should put up a route that uses the start of Blue Sky, but goes straight up the left side of the SE face". I don't know why he didn't do it himself, but I finally got around to it.

So... do the burly start of Blue Sky (which is also the crux of Blue Note), but after clipping the 5th bolt, don't go around the corner to the left. Instead, go up the easy ramp until it is possible to traverse right onto a blunt arete. There is a 5.10ish crux pulling onto the airy arete, and then nice knobs lead straight up to Mussy Hooks.


Start right on the corner between the SW and SE faces. Shares a start with Blue Sky.
