Climb the hand crack through an overhang located on the right facing dihedral about 30 Ft. left of the start of Where Lizards Dare. Follow the crack to an alcove. The crux is near the top where the crack thins out a bit and enters the alcove. This route can easily be combined with Snake to make a nice 80 Ft. climb.


Directly above Snake and slightly to the left.


hand size gear for the start, smaller, finger size cams for the top. Anchors are located deep in the alcove. 1 red tri cam and a nut with some biners as of 10/07.
