About Rainbow Wall:

The sheer curved face of the Rainbow Wall screams big wall adventure from miles away. This wall sits just behind Crimson Chrysalis in Juniper Canyon.

Approach: Head into Juniper Canyon proper, avoiding the ramp and working your way up the drainage until you reach the base of the death slabs. Head up them to the base of the wall itself.

Beta/Updates: There is an old fixed line to assist hauling packs up the death slab approach to the base. Descent can either be by rappel or down and out of Oak Creek Canyon.
