Description

Rain Delay is a really fun long 5.7 route it has 11 bolts to chains in about 90 ft. The crux is at the top just before the last bolt, you can go right for easier climbing if needed. Rain Delay is new as of 2012 so please be careful there is still some loose rock.

Location

Rain Delay is about 25 ft left of the main area of Hidden Wall, and 10 ft right of The Oaks. It is located on the black face to the left as you are hiking up to Knightland.

Protection

Sport, 11 bolts to chains

Left at the first cairn and through the trees to the route. There's a little landing tucked behind some trees. Nice, wandering route and a great length; after lowering we had about three meters left of our 60m rope. Rope drag towards the top was a bit bad, not recommended for TR, for that reason. Shaded later in the day, it was perfect when we went at 5pm. A newer route, still needs some cleaning, but overall a decent climb. A little thin in a couple places, I'd call it a 5.8, but well-placed protection and fun climbing throughout. Jul 26, 2012
After bolt ten there is an option to go straight up to eleven or veer right and clip from there. If you go right, there is a very large, very loose block directly over head as you pull onto the shelf for the anchors. I neglected to have my partner move so I could push the death-block off the cliff and out of harm's way. Climbers, and especially belayers, beware. Fun, tall route. Jul 12, 2014
