Not the main Rainbow Slab - this is the slab taken...

Most famous for the Rainbow Slab itself which has a couple of good easier routes (E1/2) plus several harder ones (E5 upwards). There are also long bolted routes on Colossus Wall.

Getting There 

Most easily approached from the parking by Vivian Quarry. Head right up a grassy incline then traverse right along a track to arrive at the top of the crag. Drop down right (facing out) to skirt around the base of the crag, then walk in along a big terrace. About 20 minutes walk.
