Start the same as When Dads Run Free climb up a little then break right on a small rail to a left facing corner. Climb the corner up to an overlap, just before the overlap is the crux short and awkward. Climb over the overlap to the anchor on WDRF.


Same start as When Dads Run Free.


Trad gear the crux is not very well protected.

There's a great finger/hand crack at the base of this climb. Much more interesting than starting as for When Dad's Run Free. Perhaps call it "The Sting Direct."
