An alpine like climb. Starts up face to large block of rock. Traverse left of it and enter basalt dike with dirt. Step right onto foot shelf in v groove with or without dirt. Dirt's much easier. Reach high right hand high and climb left for feet to up v groove using chock stones. Face climb up and left to dikes outside edge. Stay going up with the edge. It is run out at (5.2). Climb head wall above dike three ways, center, left or right and right is a little run out. Each way is slightly different style to the finish. Loose rock was removed and left to center is very easy and exposed. The woods is the finish line above the dead pine tree. Center way has a white wedged rock and it been stood on lots. Its not coming out. Nice view and almost the whole route (5.2). A low risk, alpine like, adventure climb. I have free soloed it much. One of the easiest climbs at Rattlesnake.
After Venus Wall is a moss covered wall. Uphill from this wall left can be seen the giant block sticking out from the wall. Start below it at big trees.
Small rack of nuts and cams, one big cam. Pro is sparse. It is there when needed the most (At the v groove block start and nearest to the top). Need a nut pick to clean the cracks sometimes. Walk off west or left and go down towards trails.
