Just inside the cathedral, this route shares a common start with Iceman and Rattlesnake Reality. Climb three bolts of moderate sidepulls and edges to a good rest in the Iceman crack. Clip two headwall bolts on your left from the crack then step back down to the bottom of the pillar and make a tricky move left to gain the headwall. Once on the headwall enjoy classic moves and some of the best climbing at Rattlesnake to the top.

5 out of 5 stars Rattlesnake Classic!!

Classic moves up the gently overhanging headwall. If you climb at or near this grade, this is definitely a route not to be missed.
