Description 

This route closed to climbing and is included for historical purposes only.

Climb up and into the corner, placing gear from good jams and good stances. A friend of mine did his first trad lead on this in maybe 1991, intentionally 'testing' some of his hexes by jumping off of the climb on lead. They were good. At the top, it is easy to step left to the anchors on Danita Dolores and belay or rappel from there.

Location 

Follow the approach trail up to the fork in it and take the right side, up past the Nicorette arete. To the right of this a small prow sits just right of the huge right facing corner with an offwidth, Not Worth It. The bolted route up this prow is Danita Dolores, and to the right of there in an right-facing, left-leaning corner with a hand-to-fist crack, is Blade Runner.

Protection 

A light rack of hand and fist sized gear. Goes 'bomber' on a set of hexes for those that still use them.
