Rattletale Wall Rock Climbing
Fletch on pitch 2 of RattleTale
This large, secluded cliff in the forest is named after its first route, which features a classic hand crack in a corner. But it has numerous other classic crack and face climbs as well as plenty of potential for newer lines.
Approach from the Lookout Point trail.
From the initial bridge at the start of the trail, hike up the hill to the crest. From here, if you want to check out the excellent Zelda boulders go left. But for Rattletale (and the rest of Lookout Point), continue on, going down slightly and across a flat region to Midnite boulder. Pass the boulder and enter a boulder-talus field. In about 5-10 min, reach a T-intersection, still in the boulder-talus field. Go left. Continue across and up for another 5-10 min to reach Rattletale. The trail hits the wall just right of the Rattletale route.

Pitch 1) 10a. Mixed. A bit convoluted but fun climbing. Not sure how they intended the start, I stemmed off tree, but you could approach off the Lizard slab to the right. If you stem off the tree, there is some trad pro near start, then 2 bolt flaring stem box ( crux) fingers- hands- OW ( shared with Lizard), then traverse to single bolt on left slab, balance around corner to bolted belay. Spent some time cleaning this with my friend Bill on 2/24/16.The first ascent team calls this 10a, I would ...[more] Browse More Classics in Washington

Super sweet route. The second pitch is pumpy but has good jams.
The setting is really nice, views are good.
