The first move on Clear Blue Skies.

The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>


Find an obvious low incut flake to the right of the Lama and match to start. Reach left hand to a terrible crimp, then right to a decent edge (most people use a right heelhook to make this happen). Move left to an OK edge and set up for a hard throw to the lip. Super classic, crimp, ladder problem.


This is a few feet right of the Lama, the obvious ramp/rail.


A couple of pads is plenty

Clear Blue Skies is updated and I will change NMGG as that is how Luke Parady put in on his 8a scorecard.

This problem was first considered V13. Alex Johnson made a very impressive one day ascent in 2008. Her send may have been the first female ascent.
