Runaround's large size and location aid in forming the area's namesake pool. There is potential on the south and north-facing overhangs. Its rock quality is solid in most places but also chossy in others.

Getting There 

From the parking area, head downhill to East Creek. Once at the creek, follow it to the southwest and you'll run into it within a few minutes. Reference the page map for clarification.
