Description 

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

Getting There 

Approach from the Lookout Point trail.
From the initial bridge at the start of the trail, hike up the hill to the crest. From here, if you want to check out some excellent boulders go left. But for Rattletale (and the rest of Lookout Point), continue on, going down slightly and across a flat region to Midnite boulder. Pass the boulder and enter a boulder-talus field. In about 5-10 min, reach a T-intersection, still in the boulder-talus field. Go left. Continue across and up for another 5-10 min to reach Rattletale. The trail hits the wall just right of the Rattletale route.

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

The setting is really nice, views are good.
