This line starts with the first 50-60' of Crack Where The Sun Don't Shine, an obvious hanging dihedral ~18 feet off the ground. Break off left at a tiny pillar on easy terrain to a set of anchors with Mussy hooks.

Note, 10 of these bolts on this line are directly on Crack Where The Sun Don't Shine.

Addendum: this was originally described differently, but someone pointed out to us the intentions of the energized retrobolter.

Others have provided a name, Rain Check. This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash. Some call this 5.8+.

13-15 bolts. Note, over half of this line was originally led without bolts on traditional gear.

Definitely a good route for learning sport lead. There's a lot of protection, great big mussy hook anchors at the top which make both clipping in easy and make it easy for your follower to rap down. Jul 14, 2013

Thank you very much for the Mussy hooks, Bruce.

The hooks throughout this crag really speed things along, especially on a crowded day. Much appreciated! Jun 25, 2015

This route is easily identified by the 3 closely spaced, very low bolts at the beginning of the route. This route was really fun, and well-protected throughout. Aug 10, 2017

Fun and interesting climbing. I counted 12 bolts plus anchor. A longer sling worked well on the 8th bolt just before the traverse left. Aug 30, 2017
