Rainbow Rocks is the smallest and least-visited of the main Tieton crags. Nevertheless, there's enough to keep you busy for a day and a few routes are worth repeat visits. Routes range from 35 to 60 feet on columns that range from steep slabs to gently overhanging. The rock is generally quite good and peppered with horizontal edges. The sport routes get most of the attention, but there are some worthwhile cracks, too.
Take Highway 12 east or west to "Rimrock Retreat," a small collection of cabins and businesses. The crag is on the hillside to the north above the community.
