Description 

A somewhat consistent route with crimps, sidepulls, and a large lieback feature (.11 climbing). The crux comes right above the large flake feature. Overall, I feel it is easier than Comanche, but the crux is harder than any one move on Comanche.


Location 

To the left of Commanache.


Protection 

Bolts. Chain Anchors

This is way harder than CT. Might be light for a 12c, but it's harder than Patsy at 12b. Harder than Sprayer as well at 12b.

I agree that this is definitely harder than CT. Rain dancer may be height dependent (I am shorter so thought the span 1/2 way up was big.
CT seemed to be a soft 12a on a horrible condition day, but could bump to 11d if prime conditions.
