BETA PHOTO: The Cathedral at Rattlesnake


An awesome arch formation with some hard routes. A "Window" on the outside wall frames an awesome view of the surrounding hills and forrest. Routes are located on the "main wall" inside the Cathedral, on the "Window wall" on the inside, and on the "Window wall" on the outside. It's possible to climb here while it's raining... unless it rains too hard.

Getting There 

This thing is hard to miss! Hike along the trail until you pass through a big archway. You're in the Cathedral, baby!

Arabesque 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  OR : Southwest Oregon : ... : The Cathedral
A fun climb in a great spot. Arabesque is a good warmup and probably the most popular route at Rattlesnake. Start on the belay spot, make a move or two straight right, then head straight up. Fun and exposed near the top. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
