The final section of Rainbow Bridge crosses the feature known as the Terminal Zawn (it's not really that bad!). The only way of taking a prior look at any of these routes in this zawn is from the finish of Rainbow Bridge; the big white ledge ('Terminal Zawn Ledge'). The first line is a useful way of escaping the zawn when the Bird Ban is on, and the rest are affected by this restriction, so should be avoided before August. Guidebook page 108.
