Traverse in to the arete from either side, or attempt the bouldery, reachy direct start for bonus points and a jump in the difficulty rating. Then go up.


Flutterby Blue is the first sport route on the left end of the main Bruise Brothers crag. From the trail, head left up a slight rise to a small alcove behind some trees.


5 bolts to a bolted anchor.

The first move is super reachy if you do the direct start. I traversed in from the left.

Only 5.9 if you do the direct start IMO, if you traverse in, take a number off I think.

Left anchor is a bit rusty and does spin a bit; could probably be replaced/tightened. Besides that a fun climb.
