An interesting lead that follows a flaring crack system Suggest change

This climb is between the lower left side of the open-face slabs and under the right side of the cactus ledges. 

P1 Climb the obvious winding crack that resembles a rattlesnake. The first crux is down low, offsets are useful in the flaring crack. Once you reach the top of the most flaring section of the crack, you'll traverse left a bit then continue upwards. There’s an old rusty bolt to protect pulling the upper roof section or use some really big cams in the flairing horizontals above the roof crack. Then navigate the jug rail left and up to the bolts. The bolts have large double maillons.

P2 Overgrown, Take the inside corner up and look for a ledge with a big tree, belay here or continue to the top.

P3 The last 60 feet are very overgrown. Scrambly moves up loose rock and thorn bushes.

Location Suggest change

You'll see an obvious crack system and maybe some anchor bolts.

Protection Suggest change

Anchor is bolted.
