DescriptionThis route appears to be the now-bolted top-rope Dave Bingham mentions here.
It takes a direct line which stops at its own anchor about 10' below the top of P1 of Raindance, (although the last bit of slab to the Raindance anchor is worth climbing).
Scamper up a steepish shallow dihedral with crumbly quartz chunks to interesting moves on good patina then get your slab game on and friction up a pillar to the right of a tree, using the edge of said pillar to keep the climbing moderate.
ProtectionBolts (I want to say 7 or 8) to an independent bolted anchor below the top of P1 of Raindance.
A 70 m works to reach and lower from the anchor on top of the first pitch of Raindance, adding a bit of fun climbing. Not sure how a 60 m would work from there, definitely OK from the lower anchor though.
