Holy Guacamole!! I’ve never been rock climbing before, so I was pretty apprehensive to start. I watched Aron scrambled up the rock like a mountain goat, trying to memorize his every hand and foot hold. When it was my turn I heard a hissing sound…Mike grabbed me and pulled me to the side. There was a 3 ft. rattlesnake coiled up 6 inches from my foot, and he was mighty ticked off…had that rattler going for sure. Mike got a stick, dug him out and flung him into the desert. As I watched the snake start to make his way back, I suddenly was VERY motivated to climb the rock.
