  • Description 

    This is the bolted line with black hangers (most paint is gone - looks closely) which starts to the right of Rain Delay.

    Start under an overlap, 9+, and pop over. Continue up to another overlap, 9+, and work your feet up on slopey holds. Continue up and angle back right to a 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks.

    This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash.

    Location 

    This starts just right of Rain Delay on a line of bolts with black hangers (most of the paint is gone now). It is currently the 5th bolted start from the left on this little buttress.

    Protection 

    12 bolts.

    The moves from the ground to the little roof 10' up are pretty hard. Much easier after.
