Description

A smooth gray face at the top of Rattlesnake Canyon. Taken for Granite (5.8-) and 200 Motels (5.8-) are visible from the car, both are super.

Getting There

Hike up Rattlesnake Canyon 20-30 minutes until the canyon turns right, directly below the crag. Continue in the wash a bit, then scramble back up and left to the right end of the crag, near Test Pilot. (There is a steep drop off just below the main buttress.)
