The bottom half of Rainy Wish

Description 

This route is about 20' left of Trinity, and right at the base of the trail. Follow a thin crack on the bottom to a flake in the middle. Hug the flake, clipping the bolts on the right, then stand on the flake for a nice shake-out. Clip the 6th and get ready for the crux. There are two ways to do the crux. Shorter people typically go straight up the face, right over the flake, and most others follow the crack left onto the steep slab. The 7th bolt is a bit tricky to clip and it's not a bad idea to skip it if you're confident. You're a solid 50'+ off the deck at this point so you wont deck if you're belayer is on it. This is a great route with a verity of techniques at a solid 5.10 grade. A good option for a first hard 5.10 lead. Clip the 4th bolt with a 2' sling to reduce drag.
