Description:

Four pitches. (although the second and third pitch can be done in one push if you don't mind the rope drag.)One 50m rope is sufficient. The descent is to the south of the route. This is considered an area classic and one of the oldest climbs in Snow Canyon.

4 out of 5 stars Started up the wrong route

Got there as some other climbers left. They falsely told us that going left after the first two bolts was the easy way up. Wrong. After leading gratitude I came back and top roped Leopard Skin. MUCH easier. Just requires from cams for additional protection

4 out of 5 stars Always fun

Placed one medium hex on pitch one. Also it is easy to cut the runout in half on pitch two by slinging a nice acne (acme, sp?).
Confident 5.7 leaders only on the first two pitches.

5 out of 5 stars Leopard Skin

The traverse on the 2nd was a bit of a nail biter, but a great climb!
