Lizard Run (5.12)

Always check road conditions and peregrine closures MORE INFO >>>


Lizard Run is a small finger crack that ascends the most polished section of the wall. It pinches down in some sections, only accepting a section of your pinky and calls for a lieback on tiny, polished smears on the side of the crack and even passes a small roof along the way, demanding an interesting pull out of the corner.


when arriving at the main wall Lizard run is just to the right. You'll see the bolts and the crack that goes over a small roof.


Bolts were placed along the crack to protect the entire climb, due to the fact that you're using every bit of the crack to climb it and there are now fixed steel draws on the bolts. 12 or so bolts with fixed draws to a two-bolt sport anchor. 60m rope is fine.

Some people call this "Chisel Run" because the holds are so perfectly spaced that they don't believe it's natural. It was not chiseled or pinned out, but if there were one less hold it probably wouldn't go.

Really cool climb that I've only TR'd.
