Starts hard, but gets easier as you go. Getting to the first ledge (7' up) is the hardest part. From there to the base of the ramp (6') is a 5.7 crux. From there on 5.6.

4 out of 5 stars If Shasta were only so easy.

The first route my girlfriend and I did at Rattlesnake. A pretty cool route, even though I spent more time at the bottom of it than the top. The first 7' are the hardest and the rock can be a little crumbly in spots.
