Quincy and at least parts of rattlesnake are state natural areas and thus closes to climbing. Please respect the ban.

Description 

Great starter crack; takes cams, wired nuts, and hexes nicely.
There's an overhanging oak tree that aids in a top rope set-up to keep your rope off the rock.

Climb lower crack left of Cottonmouth and mount the large ledge, step around right and continue corner crack. When the crack becomes too large for pro, finish the last ten feet on the right face.

Location 

Left corner from Cottonmouth; main cliff east. Approach up hill through boulders between Kutcher Bluff and Main bluff. See pictures.

Protection 

Mixed rack of hexes, wired nuts, and cams; top rope is an easy set-up.
