Second route to the right outside the cathedral, between Little Fatty and Woman in the Mist. Easier climbing low leads to a 1/3 height bulge pulled on mostly good holds. Above the bulge lies a long, technical slab to the anchors. This route is one of the better tests of technical footwork at Rattlesnake.

5 out of 5 stars Burning Toes

Good rests abound on the upper part of the climb, if you dont think about the pain in your toes from standing on the little pockets and edges. Fun, technical climbing that eases slightly as you approach the end.
