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 !


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

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.
