Description

The crux is moving to and past the last bolt. A funky R hand pinch/Gaston enables one to slap a bad pocket on the arete and, thus, make it to the bucket flake on top. Shuts are a bit off to the right, so TR climbing would be sketchy.

This is a fun route. A great knee-bar rest can be found just before the serious climbing starts.

Location

The route is on the wall immediately left of "The Flintstones " E-SE face goes into the shade fairly early.

Protection

6 bolts.
A large chunk came off of the saddle feature when I was on it today. Rest of the saddle starting to sound hollow. Be careful on it! Aug 22, 2016

As I recall, but not total recall [I'm old now, lol], this got it's name when one of us nearly stepped on a huge rattler below the crag. Fun stuff! Apr 23, 2009
Technically, this route is considered on the Shooting Gallery Wall. However, its proximity to bedrock is why I posted it here- FYI. Jun 20, 2007
