BETA PHOTO: Starting sequence of Run for the Border, which inc...


Slab your way up and reach up high for the first bolt. I went left up the holds and avoided the sharp plant thing, though it might be possible to go right. There are a series of big moves, nice position to clip, and regather for the next set of moves. Kind of awkard at times, yet fun. Nice, big moves for 5.8. There is a well shaped and manicured looking cactus off to the left about 2/3rds of the way up.


After first reaching the Mini Super Wall, go left and curl around and back up about 25 feet to a sloped slab leading up to a roof.


10 bolts or so and then anchors.

Goodness, this climb is a bit awkward. Not worth repeating.

This route actually only has 5 bolts. It could definitely use at least one another... either on the right if you are supposed to go right at start, or lower for someone not 6'3" if you are supposed to go past the existing first bolt on the overhang. I could reach it from the slab but otherwise it's sketchy for a 5-8 if you cannot reach the jugs.
