Penitente Canyon: Bullet The Blue Sky

Penitente Canyon is in southern Colorado’s San Luis Valley, an area that is home to many short and steep climbs.  Nate writes:

Bullet the Blue Sky is a striking arete in the heart of the Canyon bolted by Bob D’Antonio and Richard Aschert.

This amazingly aesthetic line has been called “The best sport climb in Colorado”. The title could be debated endlessly but there is no doubt that Bullet is a very beautiful line.

The grade consensus is 5.12+ (Bob gave it 12b after the first ascent). There are easier classics on either side of this climb that come highly recommended.

This is my timelapse tribute to a fantastic area and high quality climb. The climber is Brady Kendrick.
