This is really a variation finish to Rainy Day Dream Away. However, with that being said, it is likely the way most climbers will want to finish Rainy Day Dream Away with this route given the more direct line and bolt protection.

The actual moves on this finish are probably in the mid 5.10 range, the "crux" still being the initial section of Rainy Day Dream Away.
