BETA PHOTO: Dry Rain and Diagonal Crack


Climb the obvious thin crack and steep face in the whiter rock left of the main face. (See "topo" posted to "Diagional Crack") Wire nuts are very useful.

The climb was brushed on a terribly hot summer day, the brushed-off lichen becoming the "dry rain". Fortunately it was easily washed off in the lake!


On the Climber's-left side of the face, drop down to a flat area a few feet above the water line. (Sorry, no deep-water-solo-belay on this route)


Wired stoppers, couple of quickdraws.

The climb was wire brushed in July 1999.
