15m. Hard, technical and ultra-blind; and yet to receive an on-sight, despite some very worthy attention. It's essentially a low-level continuation of the crux pitch of Rainbow Bridge, staying a few metres above the sea. From the rest in the base of the chimney after the crux moves on Rainbow Bridge, swing right at the same level and continue across the amazing hanging pillar on spaced pockets (and very few footholds!). The last desperate section leads up and right to marginally better holds. Climb strenuously up to join Look, Before You Leap. Not in current guidebook.

On-sighted 2005, by mistake! I thought this was Rainbow bridge! Awesome though!
