Kielbasa Run is a new route on the far left side of the Ruckman Cave. Just left of Beer Run and The Promise are three routes that all share the same two-bolt start up low angle rock. Kielbasa Run is the first route to the left of this start; it also has a two-bolt start up low angle rock. From the ledge above this, trend up and left into the corner system. The tightly bolted start is reassuring due to some friable rock that will undoubtedly clean up with traffic. Fun, overhanging corners lead to an exposed arete. From here, step back left into the corner again and work through a stemming crux and then lower angle rock to the very top of the wall.


18 draws or so. A 60m rope will not reach the ground; you must use a 70m (or lower twice from a neighboring route's anchors)!

This route is reallllllly dirty. There are also some blocks that should be cleaned off to make it safer.
