Fighting throught the East Overhang.

Reopened after the floods. 2015 Seasonal Closures MORE INFO >>>


On the east overhang is the obvious line to the left of the moderate set of side-pulls and to the right of the arete/Nose Lunge line.

Start low, matched on a W-shaped crimp, pop right to a sloping ledge and then up on crimps.


The Mongoose Block is the first and largest boulder at The Snake Pits. This problem is on the overhanging, east face.


Throw a pad on the exposed rocks and you should be fine.
