Crotalus viridis (prairie rattlesnake, western rattlesnake, Great Plains rattlesnake). This is the species you'll find on the way up to the crag. It generally flees when threatened. The few of these I've seen in Clear Creek were all spotted at Sports Wall. The young may be particularly hard to spot, and they emerge during late summer and early fall.
