This is the leftmost bolted line on the crag. Like everything else on Rainy Day Rock, it is short, but it packs a wallop. When I first did it, it seemed straightforward. When I came back on another occasion, it was a real bear and I couldn't figure out what I did before. In the process of working it out again I slipped off a smear and got a nasty, bloody shin-banger on the lip of an overlap. I eventually succeeded, but only at a cost. It may be more difficult than .11b. I don't think it is much easier.


Three bolts [now removed?] to a two bolt anchor.
