This is probably the most classic and iconic route at Rattlesnake Rocks other than the Six Pack Roof. An easier variation exits the right side of the feature at 5.4. More exposed than it looks up top, easier climbing down below leads to an insecure reach and highstep left to a lieback up the exit crack, earning the route's 5.7 grade. Like many of the classic routes at Rattlesnake, this route will feel a grade harder for those with short arms.


This route ascends the left side of the obvious Ship's Prow feature on the right side of the crag.


Two bolts on top for an anchor. Boston Rocks gives this a G/PG rating for trad.
