Several cruxes of the grade interrupted by some good rests. Start up a steep arete to a stance that leads right around the arete to access the steep face above. Save something for the top! Tie a knot in the end of your rope so you drop your climber when lowering with a 60m.


Between Aerostar and Yaw. Start up a wide open-book corner, clip the first two bolts out left easily, and launch into fun short crux after fun short crux.


14 bolts

Climbed this one again recently and a 60 m worked fine.

However, this route has more than its quota of sketchy rock even for Diablo. To anybody looking for a good 5.12- climb at the Runway, the other three are much better IMHO. Plenty of parts of the route with loose stuff on climber's right, but the column to climber's left through the whole middle section of the route gives me the creeps. YMMV.
