Trip Report
Rainbow Wall: Success or Failure? (A Pullharder TR)
Friday November 6, 2009 7:54am
Last weekend found 6 of the Pullharder crew and friends attempting bigwall free routes. Here's the tale of 4 of us playing around in Red Rocks. Specifically, two on the Original Route of Rainbow Wall, and two of us on the Rainbow Country variation. It was a weekend of pushing personal limits, which is what Pullharder is all about!

Great job! I failed on the Original route this Spring, but I am psyched to go back and try again - your story helps to inspire! Cheers.
