This route is in the less overhung (comparitively) cave in the center section of the Big Chief center area. It's still really overhung, but not as much as the other overhung area about 150 feet uphill and left. This route is 5 routes to the left of War Paint (5.9), which always has people on it in the mornings. It also shares the first bolt with the overhung and very juggy Mohawk, which moves up and right, while Raindance moves straight up.
Sustained overhang has an excellent section to the first bolt, and then a serverely overhung, balancy and tough crux moving from the third bolt to the fourth bolt. From the fourth bolt on, expect sustained 5.11a or tougher reaches to huge jugs, until a crimpy and balancy interesting clip into the top anchors.
6 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.
