Angie's crazy beta on Blueberry

Description 

Absolute classic!

This route defined the second month of my stay in Crane Lake in 2015. While trying to recover some gear I left on Papaya?Banana!, I began to see holds in this angled line to my right. The undercling at the final roof drew me in and the rest of it never let go.

Start on the shelf beyond the large detached rock at the left side of Government Bay wall. Do a traverse to a side pull to some crimps under a roof. Pull the roof and immediately mantle to a great resting stance. Then, game on. Boulder left on some sloping crimps to a jug, then push on through the finish.

A+ route.

Location 

Left side of Government Bay wall. Boat to the detached rock or hike in from Nelson's Resort and rap to it.

Protection 

Bolts, anchors
