A fun, well-protected route that is great for laps on rainy days or for warming up. On the right side of WWI, starting in a small dihedral capped by a little roof. The crux is near the top, but, as with every other hard move on the route, has a huge rest right below it.

I was around the corner when the chunk fell today (5/19/13), and it was quite alarming. Luckily no one was hurt. I was the first person to climb it after the rockfall, and it turns out that the large-ish side pull just before the second crux was what fell off. I was puzzled why I couldn't make it past that part, having never had a problem with it in the past. I finally made it up after a few attempts, so it is still doable. Not sure if Rainy Day is now a 12b, but in any case, it is certainly a bit harder than it was before! And it now has a third crux!
Definitely a good idea to wear your helmet if you're hanging out, or belaying, at the bottom of this climb.
