Rattle Crack


The hardest portion of the climb is where the crack goes left. Historically the climb had a short second pitch.


The route is in the center of the crag and follows a curving crack to the left.


Trad gear to three inches. There is a bolted anchor with links at the top. Rap the route.

The second pitch is short and easier than it looks (5.4?) with jugs to the top. Hike about 20' more and sling a small tree for a belay. Easy walk off and a COOL hueco wall above for endless bouldering variations. Plus a cave with several routes.
