Description

Over the rainbow is most likely the best route in rainbow. It follows very thin edges through a very intimidating face. Very fun and classic. The crux comes after the second bolt where the traverse left ends. from there you have classic moves up the face to the top.

Location

This route is located to the right of Aja on the blank face.

Protection

This is a sport route so you need six draws and some stuff for the anchor.

True, you need 6 draws and some stuff for the anchor as the description says, but I wouldn't call this a "sport route." Not by modern standards, anyway. That being said it isn't unsafe and I would highly recommend this 'bolted face climb' as it is an area classic on amazing stone! Mar 5, 2009

Very cool and pretty testy for the grade by Tahoe standards. Excellent moves on a climb you could drop off in Tuolumne and call a cragging classic. There are some unfortunate spinning hangers on the 1/2" bolts but they seem solid as the spinning is more an effect of the knobby rock not allowing a tight seating than the bolts coming out. We left a locker to help the rappel situation at the top. Sort of weird for the follower in places, at the top it's all positive holds but they wind up way right of the anchor with a good (but probably safe) swing if they beef the traverse back. Sep 4, 2018
