BETA PHOTO: Walking in the Rain starts in this crack.

Look for the crack on the right side of the rock (See beta photo of Flakey). Follow the crack up to a sloping ledge with large rock leaning against it and belay. Walkoff/downclimb to the right. There did not seem to be a distinct crux. There may be a second pitch or an extension of the first (I will investigate next time). Upon returning we tried a short crack (30-40 ft, see photo, right of rope) to the right of the belay. This is definitely harder than the first pitch, possibly 5.8. Although short I enjoyed this more than the first pitch.


The route is on the right side of the rock. It is an obvious crack behind a pine tree that heads up to a large roof. We exited to the right just below the roof. To get down is simple just walk right, down climb a short slab, slide through hole between rocks, walk under the rocks, down climb a boulder, then boulder hop back to the start. If you climb the second pitch, you can rap off webbing and a nut. I added some webbing and a rap triangle January '09. Thanks to the individual who left the nut.


Hubbel says pro to 5", I used up to a #4 Friend. For the second pitch I did use #4 & #5 Camalots.
