This is now the second right-most bolted route on the Red Slab, starting off a small ledge. The name comes from the resident rattlesnake sunning on the ledge when the unruly first ascent party arrived. If the climbing seems a trifle runout, bear in mind the route went up from the ground and the bolts were drilled from free stances. The route trends up to the left, so if it ever seems like it is getting harder than the grade, step left and continue onward. Like most everything else on the wall, don't even consider using a rope shorter than 50m.


Four bolts to a two bolt anchor with rings.
