This is yet another classic in rainbow. This route is the only multi-pitch route in the area. The first pitch follows the beautiful corner crack through fun finger locks and some fun lye backing. Once you hit the top of the corner traverse left to the odvious anchors. Pitch two follows the three bolts through thin fun climbing. Through certain parts of the season this route can have waterfalls pouring down it.


This is the odvious corner crack just to the right of Jumping Jack Flash.


P1 pro: thin to medium P2 This pitch has three bolts with a bolted anchor.

you can also go straight to a 2 bolt anchor after the crack instead of heading left. its sporty for sure, not as good as the original line.
