Description [Suggest Change]
An alpine like climb with a little loose rock removed on first ascent. Starts up face below large overhang of rock. Traverse left at overhang to enter basalt dike with dirt floor. Step onto the dirt or stay with feet on rock onto the v groove away from dike (dirt's much easier footing). Reach high right to climb left for feet and the take care to not disturb the fauna in the vortex. Use chock stones to exit v groove crux. Face climb up then go left to dikes outside edge of dike run out (5.1). Climb head wall above dike three ways, center chock stones, Right is a little run out on slab. Left of center is very easy exposed steps (5.1). The finish open woods above the dead pine tree. Nice view and almost the whole route can be a (5.1) adventure climb. I have free soloed it much. One of the easiest climbs at Rattlesnake.

After Venus Wall is a moss covered wall. Uphill from this wall left can be seen the giant block sticking out from the wall. Start below it at big trees.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Small rack of nuts and cams, one big cam. Pro is sparse. It is there when needed the most (At the v groove block start and nearest to the top). Need a nut pick to clean the cracks sometimes. Walk off west or left and go down towards trails.
