The climbing here is overhanging and requires a bit of endurance and power. This area also has the hardest route THE STING(5.13c).
To get here drive about 20 miles down the canyon to The lodge and then about another half a mile to a mile and park just past the first bridge where there is a pull out on the right, walk across the road and the trail is there, walk up the hill past several good sized boulders for about 7-8 minutes, Left like half a minute is Lord of the flies wall and right is Gregs Gully, about 20 minutes
Weather station 7.5 miles from here

Great beginning warm-up for the harder routes up at Blue Sky or a challenging route for the 5.10 climber. This route is technical at the bottom on small pockets and edges that lead into a funky dihedral. After negotiating the dihedral, the climbing is on big holds up to the crux on not-so-big holds. Lots of fun. ...[more] Browse More Classics in South Dakota

First time at Blue Sky this last weekend. I found the routes that I climbed very sustained, which is great. Get up there around noon and you'll have sunshine the rest of the day. It's also a great place if you don't like having to clip a bolt every 5 feet as I found the placements a bit more runout than other areas of the canyon, which is also great.
Can't wait to go back.
