This route is on the left side of Rainy Day Rock just to the right of the prominent 5.6/5.7 offwidth / chimney. Great one pitch moderate South Platte slab route. The bolt spacing is great, not too close, not to far.


The route has 6 newer bolts protecting the 100 ft of climbing. Solid two bolt anchor with rings. Can lower off the anchor back to the ground with 60 meter rope.
