Fun moves up the buttress. Tricky thin moves between big holds down low and a 2nd crux at the bulge section midway up. More easier steep climbing on big hold above this, then the angle lessens for the last 2 bolts to the big ledge.

This climb is used to access You're Scaring the Horses.


This climb is the left of 2 routes on the next prominent pillar left of Drunk Rednecks midway across the Runway. It starts on a small platform.


10 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

I believe the FA was Rick Bradshaw and one other whose name I can't remember.

Josh Smith and I put this route up originally to gain access to the arete above it so we could work on what is now "Your Scaring the Horses" but it turned into a great route itself. Josh named it after the ear side-pull down low that facilitates upward motion in that section.
