Super fun climb

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

Description 

Great crack climbing with an exposed top section. Climb starts with an off-width crack leading to a shelf. Step across to the mid-section on smaller finger cracks and limited foot holds. Make the reach to the bucket hold and finish on the top latticed face. Step up onto the final boulder and shout "MASSASAUGA"!

Location 

Located on upper tier, at the top and right of the gully-wash access.

Protection 

Great trad climb with med/large cams, larger hexes, and nuts on top section. Can be top-roped also.
