This route traverses the Sodom & Gomorrah crack but starts lower and further to the left with some technical moves, though the rest of the route demands endurance for its short length. After ascending the slopey arete (find those hidden holds!), traverse left on dirty pockets to a hard lockoff and finish as for the topout of "Cruisin' for Burgers".
Good sustained climbing, steepness, and solid (for Rattlesnake) rock all conspire to make this an area classic. As with the whole Burger Boulder, it is very aesthetic compared to most of the rock in the area.
This ascends the obvious face of the Burger Boulder.
There are two old-ish (but solid) bolts at the top, as well as a glue-in ring bolt as a backup.
