Rockfax Description
The right-hand thin crack in the pink wall is another good pitch in a similar mold to Rainbow Games. Start below the crack.
Climb the thin lower wall to better holds and a thread. Continue carefully up the middle of the wall on good holds. © ROCKFAX

Biggest holds ever, is there even any 5a on the route? Lacks the (5b) technical/mildly bold start of Rainbow Games, thus 1/2 a grade easier. Gear a bit naff in places.

Not as hard or sustained as Rainbow Games - fortunate, as the gear is adequate but spaced.

Great! A good one for me to headpoint in order to get an E tick!!! Climbing straightforward and gear tricky to place. Could figure out gear and then climb it. Good conditions required!

A great wall, slightly overhanging, somewhat intimidating, with plenty of juggy pockets (buckets). Pumpy climbing!

/did the come in from right variant and the rainbow games finish variant. Makes it HVS/E1 and a fine way up the wall
