Description

Such an amazing route! So overhanging but plenty of good holds!

After clipping bolt one and two, consider unclipping bolt one to reduce rope drag. Clip bolt three while climbing the first roof. Reach above roof two to clip bolts three and four (come back down for a no-hands rest if needed). For the full affect, motor through roof two and find good but hidden holds up the dihedral. Get over the shallow roof three to more good pockets, then past 2 more bolts to the chains. What a gas!!!

Location

First route at the left end of the wall.

Protection

8 bolts to chain anchors.

Lots of big pockets but still pumpy. Really quite a nice climb. Oct 30, 2008
Pumpy. Super fun. It's worth the drive up the canyon just to do this route. Nov 2, 2008

I was pleasantly surprised on this one. Really fun route with a couple weird bolt placements. Really awesome pockets and jugs and fun movement, but the route just looks like a stinking pile with guano everywhere. Jul 30, 2010

it seems a lot harder in early spring because water drizzles down it making everything slippery Jul 12, 2011

Whilst I was nearing the anchors on the First Ascent, my friend Doug's dog was barking and nipping at a wound up Rattlesnake not far from the base. It was quite the struggle to give me a great belay and keep his dog from getting bit at the same time. Hence the name, Rattler. Jul 27, 2013
