Five new bolts to new ring anchors. Hazardous ledge if setting top-rope, with very long tie-in and backup line. Beware of ledging hazard to third bolt. Most falls at the rings.
To the right of the Amphitheater section, the right half of the Tall Gray Wall has a slight depression below a small ledge: two bolts there show this route, and are the crux. Going right using the dark flake area and reaching over to those bolts is the usual 5.9 line. Leading straight up the first two bolts is much harder (see "Black Rain Direct"). Taking a line to the left of the bolts is a neglected 5.8 variation.
It is a long way to Three Bears Gully. A minor gully at 'Devil' is difficult, especially down and with a pack.
