Rembering The Crain

Description 

Crux is pulling the small roof about 15' up.
Marginal gear here - done clean on FA-however a fall would be a deck on a ledge.
Much thought was given about this bolt- this is an Amazing first lead for breaking into the 5.8 trad the bolt allows piece of mind for the new leader. The rest of route is 5.7ish
Awesome finger-hand crack follows crux!!!

Legend has it the late Dan Crain was working this line before his untimely passing.

Location 

Approximately 40' left of Raspberry Blossoms
Start is right behind a small birch tree - follow the dehideral just right of an orange colored face- to a sweet finger - hand crack
Walk off

Protection 

Single rack from small stoppers .4 - #3 cammalot -One bolt. Great gear after crux!! Everything works!
Stout tree available for anchor on top.
