Description

This large, secluded cliff in the forest is named after its first route, which features a classic hand crack in a corner. But it has numerous other classic crack and face climbs as well as plenty of potential for newer lines.

Getting There

Approach from the Lookout Point trail.
From the initial bridge at the start of the trail, hike up the hill to the crest. From here, if you want to check out the excellent Zelda boulders go left. But for Rattletale (and the rest of Lookout Point), continue on, following the trail right along the crest then bearing left across a flat region to Midnite boulder. Pass the boulder and enter a boulder-talus field. In about 5-10 min, reach a T-intersection, still in the boulder-talus field. Go left. Continue across and up for another 5-10 min to reach Rattletale. The trail hits the wall just right of the Rattletale route.
