Lisa following pitch 2 Rattle Tale

Description 

This shady, secluded cliff is home to one of the best hand cracks Index has to offer.


Getting There 

Approach from town via the railroad tracks. In a short distance turn right and cross over the "creek" on a wood bridge. Hiking uphill for 10 minutes brings you to a junction with a sign marked "Lookout Point". Turn left to get to Rattletale Wall, turning right leads to Private Idaho.

Super sweet route. The second pitch is pumpy but has good jams.

The setting is really nice, views are good.
