4 out of 5 stars awesomely fun and very well protected

I have leader's regret. I should have lead this climb. It was really really fun. Bottom part is a head scratcher until you snake your way through it.

4 out of 5 stars The Snake

was charming. Sweet route, one of my favorites at the Fortress. Definitely more appropriately graded when compared to other areas. Watch the rope cutting crack if you TR the route from the anchors.
