This rotue climbs the right-most arete of the upper Rainbow formation's right summit when viewed from the valley trail.

To access this rotue climb Gift Frog (preferably) or maybe Fisticuffs and scramble up to a belay below this arete.

Make some balancy steep moves with poor pro (crux, height dependant) to gain nice finger cracks splitting the arete and then cruise to the top on good nut placements and easier climbing (5.6?). As the rock gets poor up top, stay left and head for the summit belay (gear).

To escape, scramble over to the left summit and rap the anchors above Runaway


A standard light rack to 2"
