Climb the crux of Boardwalk (2nd pitch) and park in the rest pod. Look for a series of cobbles heading left. This is Light From Blue Horses. Traverse the stone warts past three bolts to a hanging belay. The next pitch is the crux. Climb up the obvious water groove past several ring bolts. Crimp, paste and palm your way up this featureless channel. There is a big run at the top of this pitch. Make sure your shoes are clean before you embark on this 40 foot section. Belay from gear. This climb is very engaging for the grade.


Quick draws and gear for Boardwalk.

Excellent exposure. I did the traverse from Boardwalk and the vertical section in one pitch. Minimal rope drag and I used 9 quickdraws (I used one to clip the anchor). The runout section is low 5th class, and not scary considering the climb you just finished, but still wouldn't want to slip.
