Double Trouble on the left, Ramp on the right.  1974 - poor picture.  The first time of more than a dozen times up this great route.  Total novices, hardest climb up to that point, a rack of nuts, a couple of bongs and the old Ortenberger Guide book.   <br /> <br />Last time I climbed it was in the late 90's with my teenage son.  The Snaz has been a big part of my life of climbing.   Duane Ackerman: <br /> <br />This guy has been flying under the radar for years, but is a prolific climber and creator of dozens of fun new routes in COR and Castle Rocks Idaho.  Perfect  shade in the summer after 3:00 or 4:00 pm.  Good for Cowboys, not sure about Indians.   This really is Pure Pleasure.  Some of the best rock to climb at 'City'.  Nice approach, great hang-out area, good anchors, but . . .  an easy down climb if wanted.
