Description 

Over the rainbow is most likely the best route in rainbow. It follows very thin edges through a very intimidating face. Very fun and classic. The crux comes after the second bolt where the traverse left ends. from there you have classic moves up the face to the top.


Location 

This route is located to the right of Aja on the blank face.


Protection 

This is a sport route so you need six draws and some stuff for the anchor.

True, you need 6 draws and some stuff for the anchor as the description says, but I wouldn't call this a "sport route." Not by modern standards, anyway. That being said it isn't unsafe and I would highly recommend this 'bolted face climb' as it is an area classic on amazing stone!
