You can add in default/bluescale/layout/page.xml, before this </layout>:

<reference name="left">
        <block type="page/html_topmenu" name="catalog.leftnav" template="page/html/leftmenu.phtml"/>

Of course, you have to set the right block data (type, name and template). You can find it from your page.xml.

Clean the cache.

Or, you can install this module: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/vertical-navigation-with-css-classes.html.
