Description 

Most famous for the Rainbow Slab itself which has a couple of good easier routes (E1/2) plus several harder ones (E5 upwards). There are also long bolted routes on Colossus Wall.


Getting There 

Most easily approached from the parking by Vivian Quarry. Head right up a grassy incline then traverse right along a track to arrive at the top of the crag. Drop down right (facing out) to skirt around the base of the crag, then walk in along a big terrace. About 20 minutes walk.

For some strange reason this was never popular in its original condition, with an E2 5b (5.9+ X) start and an optional E3 5c (5.10b/c R) finish, but it became an instant success after bolts were added. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
