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


This is another one of those wayside type deals. Not really sure if there are any established routes here, but there is definite possibility if not. Maybe 30ft tall at its best, but generally good rock. Stopped at the wayside last winter, and walked around the base with my girlfriend. We didn't have any gear so we didn't get on anything. Anybody know anything about this place?

Getting There

Rabbit rock is a crumbly choss pile not worth the effort to check out
If my memory serves me correct there is one area with some bouldering potential outside of that you’re better off visiting the other numerous mounds of the area

Rabbit rock is like one of dlanglois favorite climbs. He loves choss and loose rock. He just doesn't want you visiting his #1 climbing area.

You can do some mediocre bouldering on the face that faces the parking lot (The wall in the picture), but some better bouldering is around the corner to the left of this face. Of what I can remember, The wall is pretty tall and pretty sloppy but overall pretty decent if you're stopping by.

I scrambled this pile with my gf last weekend. As far as a beautiful naturally ocurring formation rabbit is great, but there is negative climbing potential. The rock is so soft and crumbly you wipe sand off of it by touching it. You could probably etch your name in the face with a straw. So I guess if you are into falling and not climbing, this is the crag for you. Besides the graf it is very gorgeous, however, and well worth some studying/pics.

Fun scrambling up both summits ... but probably not worth taking gear for.
