This is a FANTASTIC addition to the Runway Wall. I was really excited over how great the movement and rock quality turned out on this line. A MUST DO!!!!

Start up a sweet hand crack over a bulge. Climb through really fun, steep, and technical dihedrals, pull another steep roof onto great, pumpy, face climbing all the way to the anchors. The crux is getting through the dihedrals, up onto the face, and to the bowling-ball-hold rest. A real thinker.


This route is just left of Mocos Locos, sharing the same quality section of rock, right where the new trail starts to head back down the slope. Currently the left-most route on the Runway.


12 bolts and chain anchor with fixed draws
