Kate eye balling the crux to come on Rattlesnake.

Climbing is currently allowed in Last Chance Canyon. Continued access is everyones responsibility. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Right off the deck, this one is strong out of the gate and slacks off as it rises. First few moves involve thin feet with small holds. The crux comes just after clipping the second bolt, with tiny crimps and technical movement taking you to a jug you'll be happy you found. After this, things ease up a little as you stem through some respectable 5.10 moves through a dihedral. Finish up by knocking out a couple of easy ledges with plenty of rests. Nice long route that does not see much traffic.


Location 

#9 on the topo, second route left of the Salad Boulder.


Protection 

10 Bolts and Chains.

If you are not solid at the grade, then consider stick clipping the first bolt.

Beware of the stinging nettle that plagues the landing of this route, burns like hell.

Beware of giant centepede that enjoy this wall. I watched a 16" monster crawl behind my rope before I made my attempt.


History 

This route got its name due to the large rattlesnake encountered on one of the upper ledges.

This would be a great route if more continuous. Pretty much a one move wonder, once past the second bolt the moves are perhaps a little tricky through the dihedral, requiring more balance and technique than strength. The top is just a long slab separated by ledges that seems to go on forever!
