Follow the dihedral past a couple of bulges for 70 feet using smeary stems and slopy face holds when appropriate. Make a burly move at the end of the dihedral through a small roof to gain a ledge. Rest up for the finish as you summon your TWall roof skills. Gun through the flake and stacked roofs to the finish. In the summer, the dihedral may be guarded by a squadron of large, white, paratrooping spiders. Warn your belayer as you desperately cling with handjams as you pray the spiders don't land on your face as you defeat them with carabiner swipes. Most exciting to do after monsoon level rain when friction is questionable.
You can set a hanging belay before mantling the final move to the top to avoid excess rope drag, or find something on top to redirect the rope. Belay from top off hemlock at cliff's edge.
Walk climber's right 50 ft to giant hemlock slung with rap ring to descend.
Originally climbed by Geoff Ris and Kevin Sigmund up to first small roof, then escaped out right to ledge. Climbed again by Geoff Ris and Ryan Haeseley under drier conditions to the top.
There are wooden beams across the trail where a drainage leaving the wall crosses. Follow the drainage uphill to the wall. Spider Rain will be located in the dihedral to the left of the drainage.
Extra 1's and 0.75's for the roofs.
Spider Rain in late March on a beautiful day.

Excellent route on great rock. Would be a classic anywhere. Rapelled from large quite hemlock at top of cliff
