Description Suggest change

One of my favorite single-pitch climbs in the country. It is comparable to other masculine enduro-classics such as Quarter of a Man and Mister Clean. Running Man features slightly overhanging Red Rocks crimping. Start with a cruxy move by the first bolt (harder, if short), followed by a long stretch of 5.10 climbing with no real rests and ends with a semi-cruxy move just below the anchors.

The start of the climb is easy to find with the Swain guide. This climb is in the sun almost the entire day.

Protection Suggest change

This pitch has about 10 bolts, which some of us consider insufficient for a climb of this length, difficulty and continuousness. The bolts can be easily supplemented with a few nuts in the #1-4 Rock range and a couple of cams in the narrow-to-rattly-finger range. A #2.5 Friend is handy at the start.
