The right curving off width. Requires a burly chicken wing and knee jam to get up to a ledge. Then some hand and fist jams to get into the long and sustained off width section. Use a combination of chicken wings and lay backing to ascend. Eases up at the end with a hand jam traverse. Wear a long sleeve shirt to climb this.


This route is on a small formation right next to the main rattlesnake buttress


Lots of medium and big cams. Doubles of #3, #4, and #5 camalots will protect it very well. Medium sized gear for the anchor with a walk off.
