Daniel on the opening moves of "Rainbow Drive".

Description 

Located on the far left side of the Predator Wall's south face and easily identified as a left-facing corner system.

Some bouldery moves past the first bolt is the crux, but the fun continues as you enter the dihedral above. A fun combination of stemming and liebacking up the corner, which is more strenuous that it looks, leads to anchors.

An area favorite that favors technique over pure strength, the variety of skills needed to climb this make it a good warm-up for the harder lines on this wall.


Protection 

6 bolts, shuts

Loose rock around bolt #3. A good jug came down today.
