This climb is immediately left of Tears of Joy on the North Face Apron. It takes a more direct and difficult line mostly staying to the left of an obvious white water-streak. The first crux comes at the first bolt and is just a couple moves. The second crux comes after the forth bolt with several feet of insecure smearing working your way up and right. This second crux is sort of runout on account on there not being a “drilling stance” for a good 20 feet. The rest of the climb is fairly moderate with the exception of a couple long reaches that could be tricky for shorter folks.
Home Run can be toproped with two ropes after leading Tears of Joy, although it is also a good lead that is relatively safe (but still plenty bold!) that will get your head in the game for 5.10+ slab in the Valley.
Bolts, 2-bolt anchor/rap.
