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.

Location Suggest change

The route is between Wide Chimney and Honky Jam on Turkey Perch (See photo, follow the rope). To get down, scramble through some boulders, then walk left for the easiest descent.

Protection Suggest change

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