Climb the falls 5.9 crack to bottom of the upper ledge/jam crack. Move up and out to the right 100% onto the open face of the upper block, look for the mini- two digit pocket to make the move to the outside right crimper on the arete to finish with a mantle move to the top. I've never seen anyone climb this upper section.

Descent Options:

rap off or walk off to steep trail

4 out of 5 stars Rattle It

This was my project, been climbing it since the early 90's.
Always wanted to put two bolts up this arete. So much fun, just watch out for the Ortega Rattlesnakes. Thus the name.
