There is a chimney dike that is unseen from below. Climb up the rock protrusions and then enter the dike. It begins as a groove and the there is a grassy section before the chimney section. The climb has some fractured rock on the right side of the chimney dike. It is unnessary to touch this rock. There is much grass and dirt above the dike and trees. Found a very old army surplus pin before the chimney that was only a third of the way in. The route maybe much older or newer than Wendell's time period of climbing at Rattlesnake Crags. I just Called Wendall's Dike.


Start is the same as 'Senior Citizen Route'


There are two bolts now on the left side of the dike. Besides that there are some oak trees and the left side of the groove has two bolts now. After the chimney there isn't much protection besides an oak tree and the rest of the climb was likely done through the dirt to finish the climb. Oak trees after the dike for belay and scramble up to enter the exit off the steep stuff.
