Snott Girlz 5.10+ 6b+ 21 VII+ 20 E3 5b  North America : Mexico : ... : Mota Wall
This is a great multi-pitch route that is very safe and very fun. The biggest dangers come from falling rocks from climbers above. The crux of the route is on the first pitch and seems more committing than that hard but definitely goes at pumpy 10+. The remaining 6 pitches are all just as much fun. The traverse pitch (four or five I think) is a blast and also well protected for both climbers. The final pitch should not be missed either.Bring the helmet and be careful of the climbers below. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
