Description [Suggest Change]
This route lies between Wide Chimney and Honky. I have three guidebooks for the area, and this route is not in any of them. So, I gave it a name (If this ever had a name I would be happy to change it). I first climbed this in the conditions shown in the second photo. I was completely soaked upon arriving at the top, hence the name. Start up the left side of a block (nice ledge for Honky). Scramble left to another ledge. The difficulties start here. Follow the curving cracks on the right to the top. I enjoyed the route due to the variety from thin cracks to offwidth and a little bit of stemming.

Standard rack plus I used #4 & #5 Camalots and a #5 Friend. The route protects well.
