BETA PHOTO: Blue Bayou (5.7), Holcomb Valley Pinnacles
Short but sweet. Blue Bayou starts on a block to the right of the gully. Work up to the first clip. The crux is a series of delicate and exposed moves from the first to second bolts. Continue up on larger holds to the anchor, shared with French Quartered. Although short, this climb provides many nice moves at grade and requires some thought. Rappel to descend.
This is the only bolt line that starts up the north face.

Fun movement and rock on this one but it's marred by the poor bolting - the 2nd bolt is tough to clip from the obvious stance if shorter and the next bolt is less than three feet away to set you up for the contrived runout to the anchors - don't miss the excellent view from the top.
