This is the result of trying to figure out what the routes here were without photos. Oh for an MP app.
This ascends an obvious line on the short buttress to the left of Seams Thin. It starts in a left-facing dihedral. When wet, the move right can feel tricky. Move up to the minor bulge, which again feels tricky when wet. High step up and top out on broken terrain.
Walk off to the left.
You can do a linkup with Rain Delay for a 5.7 lead or TR. FA: Jay Eggleston.

Wire (?#10 BD), yellow through red Aliens, #0.75 Camalot. #1 & 2 Camalots work for an anchor among the boulders above.
Interesting rock just right of the route.
BETA PHOTO: A closer view of the route.
Rain Delay is in yellow. Drowned Rat is in orange...

I think this is as hard as "Rain Delay" as the two routes share the same crux.

Jay, actually Rain Delay is 10 feet left of this photo. They are distinct lines that are ~10 feet apart, parallel to each other. Sorry for the confusion.
