Climbed this in the weekend, it felt pretty staunch.

Select Guide suggests harder than 23 due to a broken hold... any one got any thoughts on the grade?

Super fun, but the ground fall potential running it out to the lower offs at the top wasn't much fun, as my arms were exploding and a hold snapped off. Will take a little trad gear next time.

Mike,

It might be worth changing the post title to "warning Blue Sky ..." if it is unsafe near the top. If I was climbing at that level I'd certainly appreciate the heads up.

im playing on that route at the moment, def harder than 23 due to the opening moves. im guessing the broken hold is somewhere near the 1st bolt??? the rest is prety much staight forward pulling on pockets. but i think its gotta be at least 24 for the boulder problem start...maybe harder???

I'd say 7a (23) is fair. Good route too.

Nah 23 is what I've always seen it as. Wikipedia disagrees though (and it never lies), though it does have South African grades bunched in with Aus, which I believe is also incorrect?
