Description

Layback and jam up the beautiful left facing corner system that shares the start of 'Down-to-Earth'. reach the roof on bomber holds and decent rest. hand traverse out right on a ledge (that doesn't take pro like it looks it should) to the arĂȘte and short face above. Pull the crux up to this arĂȘte and short face to the top.

Location

Left side of Rattlesnake. Look for the Down-to-Earth roof and a left facing corner. The start is the obvious beautiful left facing corner. walk down to the left (south on blue blazed Metacomet trail) brings you back around to base of cliff

Protection

Standard trad rack. Hand sized cams for the left facing corner start. The dirty/ loose hand traverse ledge doesn't take anything before the crux

There is a variation that is frequently done that goes straight up through the notch in the roof instead of traversing at the arete and up. It is about a grade harder.

BTW...Slip Knot was originally rated 5.8. Aug 19, 2013

Yea I can see the 5.8 rating, it's a one move wonder kind of route. Fun. But not sustained 5.9 by any means, kind of like Kor Crack over at ragged. Pulling up onto the arete there is harder than 5.8 Id say though. And I can see pulling through the notch at least a grade harder than 5.9. Fun short route none the less. Sep 10, 2013
