Follows black dotted line.

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


Overhanging finger crack leading to a loose chock stone, finishing on nice holds, leading to the bus stop on top. I used the left corner arete to aid in the climb. Turkey vultures like to perch on top in the warm fall sun.


Around right corner from Timber Rattler on upper tier, left buttress.


Top rope is an easy set-up. Crack will take mixed sizes of wired nuts and small cams. Once at the loose chock stone the route can be run out. Bottom 15 feet is the climb.
