8m. This excellent and dynamic route breaches the big, brown roof that can be seen from as far away as the gear-up ledge. The feature is distinct and the rock is excellent throughout. Approach via Eight Ball. From the base of the down-climb, traverse Rainbow Bridge rightwards until below the big roof. Climb up to it and forge a path out and rightwards (pumpy) to finally gain big, flat jugs. Remember - it's not over until it's over! © ROCKFAX
