Rainbow Direct solo

Awesome scramble up the SE face of Rainbow Mountain in Red Rock Canyon. This is a steep, sustained, and technical route. First time ever doing it solo! I went 2:49 from Oak Creek TH to the summit, it was 2:13 from the base of the climb, which is my fastest by 5 minutes. It’s been a long time coming. I stashed some water up in the Hidden Forrest for a big effort I’m planning on 4/20/19. Another fantastic day in RR Canyon!
