4 out of 5 stars A nice way to finish Snake.

We did Snake then opted to finish up on Dessert DYke. It was a fun little climb.

1 out of 5 stars Great pitch

Thought about trying Form (another dyke graded slightly harder just to the right)...good thing we skipped it since Dessert was hard enough!

3 out of 5 stars bold

pretty bold, i thought. getting to the first piece of gear is tricky and a bit far. after that, its enjoyable for about 20' before easing off to Broadway.
