Rattlesnake Crater's south ridge as seen from the south

The highest point is at the far end of the ridge seen here

On the slopes

Now on the ridge

Summit rocks nigh

From the summit, looking northeast. Merriam Crater in the far-left back, then the two Shebas. Closer in, Francis (in shadow) and Saddle Craters, then closer in is the North ridge, and my trusty car down there

View east of Merrill Crater

Now hiking up the north ridge
