Description 

Bladerunner is a full value pitch and a Forks classic for the grade. A great one to save for an onsight.

From where you start King and Queenfolia climb up and left into a right facing dihedral. Work up into double finger cracks with tenuous tight stems and a big move to a distant hold. Finish up hand crack.


Location 

Just left of Kingfolia.


Protection 

Standard fingers to hands.

This route has one of the most awesome, exciting cruxes at the forks. In addition, it is well-protected. Good route to either go for the glory or fall trying. 3.5 stars.

The crux is all tips pieces, Bring at the very least two #1 TCU or equivalent... Bring three or more to sew it up. Awesome route.

This climb is actually good if you're shorter with small fingers because you can work you're way up to the jug with high feet and good locks.
