Description

The Runt of the Litter ascends the seam in the main part of the roof left of Mighty Dog. Easy slab climbing brings you to a good rest. From here, you punch out the middle of the intimidating roof following a seam with just barely enough holds in it. Precise movement throughout the seam spits you right into the crux of Mighty Dog. Runt is a little shorter than Mighty Dog but much harder, and it has much more sustained, technical, roof climbing. I felt like the movement of this climb was super classic, but I only gave it 3 stars due to the climb being a little dirty (it is brand new as of now, it will clean up with traffic) and the glue reinforcement on Mighty Dog. All in all, it is a really unique climb with thoughtful and precise movement throughout. The Runt of The Litter was bolted by Jay Samuelson and TJ Sanford.

Location

Start just to the left of Mighty Dog. Climb through the seam in the middle of the roof.

Protection

9 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor. You need to hang draws on the start of Runt, but the Mighty Dog part of the climb is permadrawed. Unless you are on a redpoint burn, ii is recommended to not clip the anchors over the lip to eliminate unwanted drag. That said, on redpoint, clip the anchors!
