This is the hardest line in Rainbow and one of the most sustained. A lower crux after the second bolt leads to a very hard pull over the roof. If you climb this grade good luck.


This starts just to the right of Lock buster. It is the incredible small seam with bolts which lead to the small roof crack.


There are four bolts at the bottom which lead to a crack through a roof. Bring small pro for the top and a few draws for the bottom. There might be a bolted anchor but if not you can rappel off Jousting with a jackal.
