Joyce Tsai on the first ascent of The Hammer.


This route is on the right side of a large boulder directly east and up the hill out of Rattlesnake Canyon. It faces south, so from the parking lot, a climber could be seen in profile on this climb. It is just right of an unknown climb (or project?) which has 3 bolts on an overhanging face. This climb is also on the boulder above the face climb Starrbonne (5.8)


From Rattlesnake parking, hike east, across Rattlesnake wash, and up the steep hill to the largest climbable formations. These climbs are the ones easily seen from the parking area.


Quick draws only.
