Description:

CHASING RAINBOWS 5.7 * 125’ M (3b) Begin either from the large ledge (as for Rt 3) or in the alcove as for the next 4 routes. Climb the aręte about 15’ left of Gravity’s Rainbow through various intermittent cracks and faces. The lower part is gear protected 5.5 climbing, the upper part has a few bolt protected face moves. Belay on top at the large ledge (sling and nut gear anchors needed). A wide range of cams and/or nuts are needed to protect the climb. V1 – 5.5 125’ G – avoid the bolts (stay right in the crack the whole way up). Dirtier, but a totally trad and easier variation. V2 – 5.7 100’ M (2b) – traverse right to the chain anchors below the third bolt.

Descent Options:

walk off to the east
