Unknown 11- right variation aka Rain Delay
|774 page views|
This is the right variation of currently the 4th bolted route from the left. It splits right after the 6th bolt.
The crux is shared on the bottom slab with the left variation. Ascend a slab with small holds and a key left gaston with tenuous feet after the 3rd clip. Move up to a hanging slab at the 6th bolt. Move rightward. Continue up past a half dozen more bolts to a 4 bolt anchor with 2 Mussy hooks.
Note, those with lesser slab footwork may find the crux stiff for 11-, rated by a good slab climber (not me).
This had been given a name within the database, but someone has deleted it. Now others have provided a name, Rain Delay. This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash.

12 bolts, good slab footwork.

Good if this is the sort of thing you are in to... a near holdless near vertical face. It actually is quite hard for more than a body length.

I tried this with two other friends and we all thought that this was at least 11+. Definitely not 11-. The slab crux is THIN.
