The straight up climb.
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
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.

I think this route needs a new name... where's the creativity?

I went straight up rather than out right like the pictures described, and this is probably more in the V9 or even 10 range for me. It was humid when I sent, so it is probably 9. Grab a nasty left dimple, and get into nasty right sidepull. Then bump right to sharp pinch. Top out on jugs.
