Rhesa Ashbacher on Under the Rainbow.


This is a 2 pitch slab route on the left side of Bart Dome underneath the big roof. The first pitch goes up a faint arch (maybe a piece) and then up bolts to a bolted belay. The bolts are mostly 1/4" bolts. The climbing is low angle slab climbing, and there are more bolts on the pitches then show in the Domelands book topo. Pitch one goes more or less straight up, while pitch 2 traverses to the right, and ends a the the left end of the big roof. From here you can rap (2 ropes) or continue up The Vernacular or traverse right to the top pitches of Leona/Desperate But Not Serious.

Bolts only, except if you wish a piece in the initial arch at the start (smallish cam).

P1 5 bolts and P2 3 bolts - all buttonheads I believe, but looked pretty good.
Follow the arch up left to find the 2nd bolt on P1 - not seen easily at first. Cruiser slab that's a great warmup or intro.
