The first crux (5.11) is moving pass the piton. I would not trust this piton for a fall. The 5.12 crux is near the top. It is the third bolted route on the Upper Ledge.


Rainy Day Blues is located on the Upper Ledge.


This route has not been re-equipped with modern stainless steel hardware. The route has 4 bolts and 1 pin placed in 1989. There are no anchors. This route should be re-bolted soon.
