Description 

A decent route for anyone, considering that it can be TR'd from the anchors on Snake. Mostly good climbing, on mostly good rock, but a serious undertaking as a lead.


Location 

about 1/2 way between Snake and Calypso III there is a well-featured face that offers decent climbing. This is just right of the anchors of the Route Snake.


Protection 

Tricams worked on the FA and I suspect Aliens or some other low-width flex cam might make protection easier and more plentiful, as the route is considerably runout. After leading Snake, this can be TR'd from the anchors with only minor swing potential
