Description [Edit]

When you approach the Valley of the Kings from Rattlesnake, probably the best way to go is up a jumble of boulders across from The Pyramid. Some of the boulders are pretty big. There is even a climb on one of these big boulders on the approach to Valley of the Kings.

Getting There [Edit]

Hike up Rattlesnake Canyon until about even with The Pyramid. Then hike up and left (to the south) up a steep hillside of big jumbled boulders. There is often water running under these boulders; you can hear it and there are small underground cave areas of ponds and small waterwalls. On this approach, you may or may not pass by a bolted face climb, the only climb I know of on this approach.
