Description

It's kind of funny. I did this route maybe 10 years ago and remembered it as being a huge, awesome, overhanging arete. When we hiked up to it this weekend, I realized I was on drugs. It's about 30 feet tall....

Bladerunner takes a steep arete, with the left side being quite overhanging and the right side being less than vertical. The layout of the route, as well as the orientation of the holds kind of leads to mental confusion on whether to stay on the overhanging side (more strenuous but more straightforward) or to crawl over the arete onto the face (probably less strenuous, but probably awkward).

Location

When you first get up to Ridge 2 there is a long, sizeable roof that is 20 feet off the ground. Just past this is an obvious, overhanging arete, probably about 20 feet tall, with bolts. It is towards the easternmost part of Ridge 2.

Protection

7 closely spaced bolts. The anchor bolts and webbing were in pretty bad shape. It is pretty easy to top out and hike over the top (north) and down through the cave to get back to the start.
