Yeah....I have this strange love affair with run out climbs. I remember Morgan muttering under his breath, "When are you going to place pro?". The crack below is 5.7 but the fun begins about 20 feet above.....thin 5.9 friction with only three more bolts. Total height of the climb is 80 feet. Bob Burd remembers my appetite for running it out on Middle Cathedral's NW Face (IV, 5.7).....however, I wanted to forge into unknown territory on the third pitch (run out "Yosemite" 5.9....scary!)

What's cool is that the rope isn't even close to the crack/route which tells me the last piece of pro is waaayyy down there. Unless, of course, there is a long runner attached to it.......doubtful.

Actually, the amount of pro between Dave and the ground is precisely ZILCH! I think he's about 20-25 feet up at that point.

That may be the nicest 20 feet of climbing I've ever done. I described it in my trip report as, "beautiful, perfect, 5.7ish fingers-to-hand crack that starts at the ground and gently curves right to a small ledge at 25 feet."

My damn strange love affair with runouts! What should I do? Gear "stuffing" is out of the question! BTW, what did you think of it?
