The route between Slim Pickens and Dark Shadows The rock on the route is good but expect the climber to knock off some small pieces of choss when being lowered down. Belayer should wear a helmet. FA Bill NewComb

Nice long route with several fun sections and a little flake that you can sit down on and take in the view. Good rests are usually available to take the sting out of the steepness of the wall. Nice line!
Awsome route!My second onsight 5.11a at the Snake.Thanks to Bill Newomb.Watch out for the falcon nest on the ledge about two thirds of the way up.Please dont touch! Theres babies in the nest.THE NESTING SEASON LASTS sometimes until middle of summer.Ive done this route several more times since my first ascent,in2006.The nesting still remains in 2010.
