really very pleased with developing this one
I describe this one as the 'tiered roof' since the climber goes through several roof bands from the bottom to the top. I prefer the dynamic start off the tombstone-like boulder at the base, but an optional start is on the pointed boulder to the right and traverse slightly at the start to above the first bolt.
BEWARE of the fairly rotten choss band below the final gray roof. It sounds horrible but held up to a strong beating from my rubber mallet. I got several route developers advice to not worry about it, but I do. Expect some gravel to peel off under foot so belayer beware.
AKA - Not Just Another Choss Band in the Music Capital of the World. Had considered naming it that, but got blank responses from several with whom I mentioned this. So I went with Rattled based on finding a 2 inch long rattle from a rattle snake near the base of the crag. YIKES!
It's a solid 5.11 with the thin finish and dyno start. I'll start with 5.11b and see where the community takes it. John thinks 5.11c - as evidenced above.
