The only gear-only climb at Rattlesnake. Gets two stars from me compared to other routes at the Snake. Parallel-sided crack with lots of features for feet and a few face holds. A good crack for practicing/learning jams from off-fingers to fist. Takes cams well but not such a great route for beginner trad leaders. Can be TRed by either rapping of the tree at the top of the cliff (hassle) or climbing the Ocelot and moving the anchor.
