Description

The East Face of Rainbow Mountain is home to some nice climbs and wide cracks that are scattered along its base to the south of the height of land in the center of the mountain. A semi-adventurous craging area that so far has received only what seems like sporadic visits, despite the good quality of most routes.

Getting There

Approach from Oak Creek, hiking the main trail until you reach the sign for the Knoll Trail to the North (right). Take this trail North for approximately 5 minutes looking for a faint trail on your left that leads up towards the East Face routes. Follow this faint trail passing occasional cairns to the base of the wall. It is helpful to spot the routes from the trail to know what you're aiming for.
