Description [Suggest Change]

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.

Location [Suggest Change]

Rainy Day Blues is located on the Upper Ledge.

Protection [Suggest Change]

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.
