OUT OF THE BLUE 5.7 ** 90’ F (7b)
At the far right end of the face (right of the lower big roof), begin behind the plump juniper at the base and climb the block to the lower slab to the clean arête and the 2 ring anchor right of the stacked boulders. A very good start leads to an even better finish.

Fun climb with sun most of the day. Like most of the routs around here, they are well bolted and have been brushed clean, Thanks to the ones. The last 20' of the arete can be done three different ways, good cracks both on the inside and face of the arete or climb the arete using your imagination and both sets of crack systems. Worth doing.
