Rattlesnake Rock, Tumwater Canyon. This wall, located behind Piton Tower, was the scene of two new routes during the summer. The “Marlboro” route, climbed by Ed Cooper and Galen McBee started up almost behind Piton Tower, and proved to be medium-hard class 5. The “Viceroy” route, climbed by Fred Beckey, Don Claunch, and Ed Cooper was mixed class 4 and 5. The start was made at a large cleft in the rock near its east corner. Many fine routes remain to be done on this wall.
