John Groth on Raindance
Raindance is a classic route... I was skeptical but it is really good. Well left of the Davidson Wall and just right of the black rock near the pond, partly obscured by trees. Climb up an obvious feature through the trees and over a roof, then continue up really good rock via discontinuous cracks. A great climb.
Double set to 0.75 Camalot.
It's such a good climb. Not to be missed. Andy en...

fwiw- i did not believe that this route can be considered PG13- it ate pro like a fat man eating chocolate.....i put in plenty of gear through the cruxes and never felt like i was running it out....

I really really enjoyed leading this route. Fun climbing and great pro. This was some nice face climbing to mix up a day of mostly pure crack climbing.

Kind of unusual for the area. Awesome and great.

I am pretty sure the FA of this was Jim Haisley with me belaying.
Just a bit after a summer monsoon.
Very fun pitch, much better than it looked from the ground.

An excellent route with great position & exposure, and a suprising amount of face climbing.
