T Runt is a stout line on a twin crack system splitting a clean overhanging face on the lower part of Genetic Wall. Though short, its got a variety of moves and is a worthy challenge at the grade.

The name comes partly from the observation that the twin cracks outline the shape of a cartoon dinosaur, not unlike the shape of T Rex Spire in West Sedona.

Easiest way to start is by bouldering up to the right of the twin cracks and swinging left on the obvious triangle-shaped block. (Direct start is more true to the grade, but tricky to protect). Punch it through the steep twin cracks (crux). At the big ledge/alcove, step out right to follow an easy fist-offwidth crack on the varnished arête. There's a two-bolt chain anchor where the slab rolls over.

Single rack from teeny tiny TCUs to #3 camalot.
