Description:

Start at ledge with birch tree than climb face on unusual pockets to juggy roof at top. Bring slings for the anchor if you intend on setting up a TR, or your rope will get trashed over the edge. Rapping vs lowering will help save rope wear too. This is now the second bolted route from the left coming off the small ledge, as Rainbow has been retroed. The bolts on White Suits have mostly been replaced with glue-ins also.

3 out of 5 stars Razor sharp

It was alright. Sharp interesting holds at bottom with a small overhanging crux at the end (get high feet and reach!). Short.
