Description 

This is a nice chunk of quality rock that is probably all of 25 ft tall at the most. It actually lies just north of Wampatuck Rd. It is approached via hiking up the dirt road a short way, then breaking off right on the first faint trail, heading E for a ways. It lies just S of Ship’s Prow. Long slings are useful for anchors. While you can boulder these problems, a fall could prove costly. Old bolts & pins on top can be supplemented with gear including a #10 hex.

L->R:
A. Roll Me Over, 7
B. Cruisin’ For Burgers, 11
CD. Back Door Man, 11
D. Sodom and Gomorrah, 9
E. Buns Up, 10

F? Pink in the Middle, 13-, 1p.
G? Sodom Hussein, 12, 1p, 30', bolts.

Getting There 

To get here, drive I-3/SE Expressway to exit 8, go to Wampatuck Rd, towards Chickatawbut Rd. Park on the N side of the road past Bunker Hill Quarry. Walk back E and find a dirt road on top of an embankment covering a pipeline. Faint trails break off to the right.

Featured Route For Burger Boulder
Working through the first crux.

Back Door Man 5.11- 6c 22 VIII+ 22 E3 5c  MA : Rattlesnake Rocks : Burger Boulder
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.
