Rattlesnake Buttress is known for it's two classic 5.8 cracks, 200 Motels and Taken for Granite. This is the (and until recently, overlooked) crack to the right. Same start as the other 2 but hand traverse right (foot traverse possible but not as fun) and head up cracks on the edge of the buttress. A great variation is the splitter seam leading up to the middle crack of the three (try not to stem to the right!).
