The Ivory Tower from high above Rattlesnake Canyon...

Description 

This is the hillside due east of the Rattlesnake Canyon Parking Lot. There are about a dozen climbs on the hillside up the hill right out of the Rattlesnake Parking lot. There are more climbs on the hillside to the north - Leisure World and high up on the hillside to the south - Stealth Pillar Area.


Getting There 

Park in the parking lot for Rattlesnake Canyon. Hike straight across the canyon, and start plugging away up the steep hill to the crags, which are, for the most part, at the top of the hill.
