Description

White Rain is a fantastic mixed pro climb; one of the few to get 5 stars in Randy's guide book.

The route begins on a large boulder uphill from Mojave Queen (5.11a). It is prudent to stick clip the first bolt before stepping onto the steep face. Sustained face climbing past six bolts on fine patina brings the climber to cruxy moves that gain the short finger/hand crack. A few challenging moves in the crack lead to the top.

Protection

Pro includes QD's for 6 bolts, a few small TCU's (#1 - #3), and a few small - medium cams for a short crack to finish the climb. Rappel from a two bolt anchor with chains/rings at the top.
