Description 

Snack Break Direct is located just left of Snack Break. The first bolt is reached after what can be an awkward start through large flared horizontal cracks. After surmounting the bulge at the bolt, follow the featured face past a couple more bolts to the chain anchors.

Protection 

Quickdraws, if uneasy about the runout on the easy ground there is a small horizontal crack or two that do accept cams. This route does not share anchors with Snack Break as the new Bingham guide depicts.

The photo for this goes to "Snack Break," not Snack Break Direct. There is a bolted line about 10 feet to the left. 3 bolts, unless you find a way to get cams in somewhere.

If you're not confident climbing 5.8 you may want to stick clip the first bolt.

A large camalot (3.5 or 4) fits great below the first bolt. You can also use the same cam as a directional to TR the heady gear climb to the left.
