Rattlesnake Rock from below, on the approach trail
|Seasonal Raptor Closure Update: Noontime and Midnight Rock now open MORE INFO >>>|
Rattlesnake rock has a number of quality sport routes that are not slab climbs. There's a higher face with somewhat dirty, but fun 5.10 routes and then a lower section with a few harder ones, including the classic Rock n' Rattle (11c).
Just further North than Castle Rock on Highway 2 by about a quarter-mile is a paved pull-out on the river side. Park there and find a trail entering the woods at the northern end, marked by a cairn. Steep hiking brings you to the crag in about 15 minutes.

BETA PHOTO: A hand drawn topo on rattlesnake rock.

The topo in Kramar's 2010 guide suggests that all of the climbs on the "Sport Wall" start at the same elevation. It sure seemed like there were three climbs that started low down together (Tubbing, Rattle, and Zweibles) on the right and the rest were up on the ledge to the left (towards Piton Tower).
Any better beta out there?

I posted some general information and specifics about access to belay ledges on the Wenatchee Outdoors website last year . This would be good information for first timers heading up to Rattlesnake.
