Closed north of Chimney Rock. MORE INFO >>>


The crux is getting on. After that you pull down hard on the obvious buckets, and hopefully have enough steam to finish.


This climb is in the middle of the Blue Groove. The Blue Groove is about 200 yards DOWN stream from Mother Wall on the same side of the river, tucked up high on the bluff. You will see two broken off pieces of limestone like spires just before you get there.


4 bolts to anchors.

Hey mossman, just wanted to say I think your height of this route is a little short by a few feet, 10 I think.
