One of the entry level climbs at the Runway Wall, though not an easy pitch by any standards.

Start left side of the wide crack on some face holds to clip the first bolt. Find a few nice hand jams to good holds through the next couple bolts before heading left onto the face. Staying in the crack a few extra moves may help bypass some tricky but fun face moves through the lower part of this route.


On the right side of the Runway just uphill from Stone Temple Pilot on the same elevated platform as Ergo.


9 bolts to anchor
