Description 

Awkward, odd, and wandering climbing on the right side of a blunt arete leads to steeper, trickier terrain. While the crux of this route may be considered down low, the true crux may be clipping the anchor.

Hair raising !


Location 

The third route from the right when entering Black Rock's Shady Side. This sits directly left of Run Bunny Run


Protection 

Four bolts and a rap rings.

Moderate 5.10 climbing all the way to right below the anchor. Clipping the anchor while side-pulling on a crimper is the only challenge for the 5.11 climber.
