A fine climb to the left of the ever-popular Blue Sky making the most of the steep rock to the left of its upper section.</br>1) 4c, 26m. Start as for Blue Sky but continue leftwards up the long groove to a ledge and small cave to belay.</br>2) 4c, 30m. Climb two grooves in the wall above to the top roof. Pull left around this and continue to the top in a fine position.

A unique climb in an environment close to paradise on a great day. This one scared me stupid with its exposure but thats what it all about.

First pitch is as on the topo (and excellent) though the belay is higher than shown - at the prominent yellow caves. Upper pitch; move left and climb the rugged face to a steep shallow groove. Pull up and rightwards (bold and pumpy) then climb the groove to a rightward exit - maybe E1 5b.

Agree with the previous comment of the top pitch being E1 5B. No way it's 4c.
