If you enjoy old, rusty bolts, you missed your opportunity in Rattlesnake Canyon. All of the old bolts have been replaced one-for-one with shiny 1/2" Rawls. Just don't expect tightly-bolted sport routes--the bolt spacing is still old-school.

Patrick Callery leads the stunning, upper headwall of Fun in the Sun, in Rattlesnake Canyon.  <br /> <br />Don't get confused by the rope hanging straight down from Patrick. This is actually a fixed rope that hung on the route while bolts were being replaced. Patrick climbed in to this scene from the right.

How good is the view?! <br /> <br />The summit of Fun in the Sun, in Rattlesnake Canyon, is simply stunning. The world drops away in all directions...you are 70 meters above the canyon floor and more than a 2,000 feet above the ocean...

The Fun in the Sun wall, in Rattlesnake Canyon, gets my vote as Santa Barbara's coolest climbing outing. The wall boasts excellent moderate face climbs up to 70 meters tall (70 meters!!). And the upper headwall of Fun in the Sun is simply unforgettable--certainly the best route I've done to date in SB. <br /> <br />Blue - Unnamed 5.9 <br />Green - King Snake Crack (5.7) <br />Yellow - Tender Flakes of Mercy (5.8) <br />Red - Fun in the Sun (5.8)

One of the route's must stunning features is found half-way up the layback crack. How a King Snake got to this point on the wall (90 feet above the ground!) boggles the mind. <br /> <br />Keep this in mind when climbing in the area - the snakes in Rattlesnake Canyon climb 5.7.
