BETA PHOTO: Ophidiophobe is the route on the left. Yellow dots...

Description 

Slither up the easy chimney/corner and onto the face above. Snake along the leftmost weakness past 4 bolts, and sidewind right past a small roof to shared anchors.

The climbing is well protected and sequential!


Location 

This is the leftmost route on the Terraphile. See the photo.


Protection 

4 bolts + gear + 2 bolt anchor.

Gear beta:

A hand to fist-sized cam (#3.5-4 Friend) for the initial corner and a wide, finger piece (red Alien) in the crack below the first bolt are required. A thin fingers piece for the highest roof and another large hand piece at the bottom will sew it up tight!
