Description:

This sweet crack begins on the lower section of the Snake's Head formation, on the vertical portion of the wall. It traverses diagonally for about 40', then abruptly heads up and over to the slab. **** Route, although some debate has gone on concerning bolting the beginning of the route, as your first piece isn't accessible for a ways up -- if yer skeered, place a 4 Camalot on Snake Head Dihedral above where you start, then have your belayer pull it when you slot your first placement. F.A. Jon Frank, Jimmy Ratzlaff (1979)

5 out of 5 stars good skunky beer

moosehead, that is - and the route is even better! Nice bouldery start, to sweet jams and a viciously rough crack. Will definitely be taping up next and subsequent goes. This time I followed up Sean, and it took me several shots to figure out a sequence at the start. Good stuff. Redpoint not far off.
