Thanks Marc. Yeah, I like this one too. I made a big wall blow-up of it years ago.

I just used it to dress up the Alabama Hills Page. I hope you don't mind, but if you do, please let me know.
Thanks,

Thanks Vitaliy. It looks like some of those lenticulars are racing around the sky.

Thanks Granite! I did a mountain page on it. I got the name from locals it's not on the topo but it's real easy to find just go to the page, or Alabama Hills.

Rattlesnake Hill is just southwest of the junction of Whitney Portal Road and Horseshoe Meadows Road. Apparently it is not considered to be in the Alabama Hills, since it is 1645 meters and the designated high point is only 1632 meters. And at 1711 meters, the peak across the Portal Road to the northwest is higher than either of them.

The 1711 hill ("big pile") is what I am referring to here. It is more complex. I nick named it "Cobra Hill" on a few shots I took from the top. If you approach it from the Movie Flat area some of the routes are really committing time consuming route finding boulder hops. If you approach from further up Whitney Portal road higher on the alluvial fan and more from the southwest the elevation gain is less and the route finding is pretty simple.

Right - I climbed it in May 2012, from the east. I couldn't tell which was the highest boulder on the summit, so of course I had to climb them all. I just considered it Peak 1743.
