4 out of 5 stars nice route

The bottom fists section and the top offwidth make this a 5.8 - 5.8+ IMO. Pumped out at the roof and missed the lead onsight. Nice route -- a bit sandbagged.

5 out of 5 stars Dry Rain

I am one of the 1000+ route climbers at Jtree and would have to say Dry Rain is the most challenging 5.7 I have climbed there to date. Super pitch, fantastic area. Definitely the best wall at Indian Cove. In dead of winter, get up there early to get some sun, will not last 2nd half of morning. A bit of everything on this pitch, wide corner to roof with hand traverse, a short bit of chimney and off-width to finish. You can set a top rope with long extension on medium gear.

2 out of 5 stars fists on a 5.7?

I added this in here as 5.7 b/c that's what it is in the guide. felt extremely sandbagged. I'd call it 8 or 8+.
