Start standing with your left hand on an incut edge at around 5.5 feet and your right hand on the arete at the same level. (The start will feel quite spanned out to those shorter in stature.) Climb the double arete feature, exiting right after gaining the apex.

This has brilliant compression climbing and is definitely one of Telluride's best.


This climbs the obvious double arete compression feature that is staring you in the face as you approach from The First Boulder.


A few pads are nice.

I tried this route today and am wondering if some of the holds have broken apart from rain/use/etc. I could get up high into a position with my right on the undercling inside and my left up high out on the face, but one hold was already crumbling off a bit, and I couldn't find anything to grab next even though I'm pretty tall. I'm not very experienced outdoors, but I did a couple of the V2s in the area, and I've done V3 before. Maybe I just need someone to show me the beta. :) Jul 18, 2018

There's not much on this climb that could/would break. I haven't been there in a month or so, but the last time I looked, everything was intact and solid. Based on your description, I'm not sure you were actually trying 'Gravity's Rainbow'. Anyhow, the easy answer to both whether you were climbing it, and what the beta is can be found here: vimeo.com/235163283.

'Gravity's Rainbow Low' is the first climb in the video. Jul 19, 2018
This weekend I am going to be in town for a few days and trying to get help with this area. To aid people like me to get our bearings, where is the first boulder / where is a good place to meet climbing buddies in town? Aug 15, 2018
