T Runt is a stout line on a twin crack system splitting a short, overhanging face on the lower part of Genetic Wall. Sustained climbing, athletic movement, and all-natural pro combine to make this 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, step out right to follow an easy fist-offwidth crack on the varnished arĂȘte. There's a two-bolt chain anchor where the slab rolls over.

Single rack from teeny tiny TCUs to #3 camalot.
