Description 

This line starts with the first 50-60' of Crack Where The Sun Don't Shine, an obvious hanging dihedral ~18 feet off the ground. Break off left at a tiny pillar on easy terrain to a set of anchors with Mussy hooks.

Note, 10 of these bolts on this line are directly on Crack Where The Sun Don't Shine.

Addendum: this was originally described differently, but someone pointed out to us the intentions of the energized retrobolter.

Others have provided a name, Rain Check. This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash. Some call this 5.8+.

Definitely a good route for learning sport lead. There's a lot of protection, great big mussy hook anchors at the top which make both clipping in easy and make it easy for your follower to rap down.
