<< Eight Ball < Cod Tympani | Terminal Slab > Comeback Kid >>
10m. This brilliant piece of climbing ascends the rising, pumpy jug rail, that can clearly be seen from the faraway gear-up point. Strenuous, and on great rock throughout; it is well worth seeking out. It takes the rising jug line above the lower, original traverse of Pitch 9. Start just right/north of the Cod Tympani roof. (If you want to climb the pitch as a route in its own right, use Eight Ball to access it.) Attack the traversing, rising jug rail with gusto, to end up at a standing rest on the far pillar. Continue by dropping down, to rejoin the lower traverse of Rainbow Bridge. Not in current guidebook.
