Description

Multiple bolted & trad routes on the face of Rattlesnake Ledge. Ripe for further development. Beta is all super rough, and we'll work on getting it more accurate. In no way whatsoever am I taking credit for establishing these routes. If you have definitive beta or other information, let us know!

Getting There

When at the parking lot for Rattlesnake Lake, and looking at the Ledge, routes are all on climber's left. Most people stay clear of the direct fall-line of the ledge, since hikers tend to trundle rocks and water bottles from the top. Take the main trail to the Ledge, and at .75 miles head straight up-hill and off-trail to the base. Once at the base, traverse left until you start to see bolted routes. The off-trail portion actually has a flagged rough trail in, for when body recoveries happen.
Alternate approach is to follow the Ledge trail to about 1.5 miles, and then at a large rock switch-back, head into the woods and traverse to the base of the Ledge.

One of the developers of this area is Bryan Burdo. Several of the routes at least were put up in the early-to-mid 80s. But I don't know if they appear in any printed guidebook.

I went up there in the 80s with some verbal description of the routes and did a few. I can't remember much about them except it is a nice location. Hopefully the hikers above don't knock anything down and some of the bolts have been upgraded.

Nice pics of the area. Thanks for posting them Aaron. Dec 10, 2017
