in the new joes guide book they combine snake mouth and super sloper as a v3 as they are a bit contrived b/c of eliminating holds.

Climbing rocks in general is contrived... why climb up either of these routes when the downclimb is the easiest way up? Super Sloper and Snake Mouth are separate routes because climbing is fun, and so is diversity!

I believe Super Sloper and Snake Mouth are two independent lines, and only join up for the last 2-3 moves to top out.
From the starting holds, make a long reach out to the far pocket out right. Use the shallow pockets just above that to work your way up to the giant bucket with your left hand.
The slanted slot to right of the 2nd "super sloper" is technically not part of the Snake Mouth problem, but use it if you need to. It will significantly ease the difficulty
