Description

Starts at the top of the wave(cairn) about 200' to the right of the route "Dedication"."No Where To Run" was climbed in 'very ' warm conditions.
P1) Straight up the middle of the slab where it forms a blunt ridge to reach double anchors. 180'5.6.
P2)From the belay traverse slightly down about 20' to the right to a small gray groove . Follow this then left to a sandy flake in the center of the slab . Up this to a bolt then 20' to double anchors on a good ledge. 160' 5.8+R.
P3)Easier climbing up a shallow groove towards the base of the upper groove system. 200'5.5.
P4)Smear up the groove passed pro bolts . When the bolt at the top right of the groove is reached traverse about 15' straight right to the edge and another bolt. Continue up the edge passed one more bolt(one may want to unclip the first bolt on the edge to lessen rope drag) to double anchors at two prominent pot holds. 170' 5.10R.
