[R to L traverse between the roofs on the descent of Eight Ball (4+) as part of Rainbow Bridge. , 4 kb]11m. More often used as a down-climb to re-access Rainbow Bridge or reach Cod Tympani. Good climbing, and if you do find yourself 'off' the crux of Rainbow Bridge, you'll appreciate this steady exit. From the ledges to the right of the chockstone chimney, climb diagonally rightwards along a deep, comfortable crack to gain the nose of the prow; top out easily. © ROCKFAX
DWS F4+ and S0. The descent route for the second half of Rainbow Bridge. Heads down the seaward face to locate a leftwards traverse underneath the prominent overhang. Perhaps a little stiff at F4+ especially when soaked climbers use it to escape.
