Rattlesnake Ridge is a nondescript little outcrop with a couple of worthwhile moderate routes near it's lower end. You probably won't come out here just for this rock, but you can easily explore here while you are visiting nearby Prayer Wall.

Getting There 

Scramble up from the road, through the underbrush and across the talus. Rattlesnake Ridge is 100-200 feet west of Prayer Wall.

Beware of some rattlesnakes in the talus field to the West (the one the separates Bandshell and Rattlesnake Ridge). We saw a couple yesterday.
