Description:

This is the route on the far left. It was first bolted by Jeff Pedersen but he let it sit for 4 years, so I grabbed the first ascent in 1995. Its very bouldery, the crux is V7/V8 but it has a lot of fun moves on it and is worth doing. In the Ruckman guide its published as "Snaked from New York" go figure.

4 out of 5 stars Stout

Don't remember the exact date of ascent . I got the first ascent in two days time. The start of the route is very powerful then it opens up to enjoyable pocket and edge climbing. Its gets easier as it goes but there are some hard clips.
