This area has most of the easier climbs in Rattler, and is a popular area. It can get busy on warm days and weekends. There is a variety of grades and quality here, most of the really good routes are in the lower grades.

Getting There 

From the main parking area, hike straight up the scree slope heading towards the left side of the obvious large triangular face. pass this and the climbs will be on your right side heading uphill.
