Great for technical climbs and fancy foot work!

Getting There 

Fastest approach is to descend the dog walk and continue walking down canyon (left), pass the manky alcove, then dolphin rock, and right around that corner you will arrive at this aptly named crag.

What is the bolted line farthest to the right - technically outside of the roof? Easy climb, but couldn't find info in the guidebook.

To reach the Rainy Day Roof walk down the dog walk and take a left (west) and walk down the cliff line for four or so minutes. This is the first large roof you will come to with four short sport routes surrounded by two gear routes. The climbs are almost always dry but are short and can be greasy from the condensation, footwork is helpful!
