BETA PHOTO: 1st pitch of Cling On
Cling On is a three pitch route but most parties only climb the first pitch (5.8). The crux of the first pitch is making the first few moves to the obvious handholds in the huecos. Pitch two climbs up (5.9) and then out right on a traverse (5.5)to the first belay of The Snake. Pitch three (5.9) ascends the upper pitch of The Snake.
The left-facing book about 70 feet north of Snake Rock in an alcove.
Gear to 4 inches if climbing entire route. Gear to 2 inches if only climbing first pitch.

"Pitch two climbs up (5.9) "
you might want to mention that there's a choice of 3 cracks (shitty wide one, good wide one, and good tight hands one) up there & all involve tiptoeing around a teetering block.

not sure what you would do with only 2" gear once you get to the pockety stuff... you either have to get (larger) gear in behind the flake or run it out to the bolted anchor on top of the ledge.
