Peyote pump is most likely the best route and is a route you can not miss. with tricky finger locks and good footwork it is by far the best crack at Rainbow.


From Gasoline alley you can see the breath-taking arching crack which is peyote pump.


Pro: to 3" with some thin stuff. There is a bolted anchor at the top.

This had not been climbed for a couple of years. Several of the key finger locks had full grown moss in them. After cleaning this thing is totally classic and very difficult for the grade.

Easily one of the best mid-.11s in north Tahoe. Worth a trip to Rainbow just to climb this. Probably more .11c than .11b.
