|Quincy is closed to climbing, Rattlesnake is open|
A really fun 15 foot tall near vert slab (like as close to vert as you can get). About 25 yards North of the house boulder with a slightly angled landing, you can't miss it. More technical than powerful so it is hard to rate, but the crimps are pretty small. Start in the middle of the wall pretty much right under the overhanging tree. Find a small two finger crimp/pocket and start with right hand in or around there, and left hand on a crimp about a foot or so to the left. Stand up. Get foot/feet higher and reach for sharp crimps up and to the right. Reposition feet, stand up and reach for a good crimp up and to the right, or a crimpy v thingamabob just to the left of that (be careful because that v thing wants to be broken). Reposition feet and go for the top. Be careful because some of the top out holds are thin and might break easily. This problem is great because from the start, you slowly work your way right and towards the jugs on the arete, but you don't end up using them until the top out when they make for good feet. Also, there could be a good line that starts on the left side of the slab.
About 25 yards North of the House Boulder. It has a sloped landing and there is a cool thin sculpture like thing that has been eroded out of the wall on the arete to the right. .
Pads and a spotter.

This thing seemed really dirty when we climbed it to the point where we thought it probably hadn't been done, but perhaps it has been climbed before. If this is the case let me know and I will change the name/FA.
