I led part of this route a few months ago but only got about 30-40 feet up as a young Mojave Green rattlesnake was perfectly seated in a horizontal crack in my path. I had no problem climbing past him but my partner didn't want to. I offered to toss the pretty snake down but my belayer thought it wouldn't be a good idea, I think he yelled, "NOOOOOO!" so I downclimbed.
I followed up this route today.
