Dave mounts the crux.


This is another little line on the left side of this crag. On the 3rd trip, after getting rained off a time or two, this line finally got a human ascent. It turns out to be a bit more interesting than you'd expect from below.

Start up a crack ~10 feet left of a left-facing dihedral. Be gentle with some hollow-ish flakes low. Traverse right on a ledge. Gain the dihedral and make some more-delicate moves upward. You can girth hitch some boulder constrictions for an anchor.

This probably needs a good downpour or more scrubbing to get it fully clean.

Walk off to the left.


This is on the left side of this crag.


You can get a good number of cams in, #0.1-#2 Camalot sizes. I used 2 #1 Camalots and a purple Alien.

I think the most difficult move comes when you move up the dihedral and over a small bulge. The protection is good here. This is the same move you have to make on Drowned Rat which is rated slightly easier.

Jay, for what it is worth, these 2 lines, Drowned Rat and Rain Delay, are entirely distinct lines. They parallel each other and are separated by about 10 feet. Sorry for the confusion.
