(n) Snake Rock Rock Climbing
Entering the crux on lords of karma
This West Side area has a classic arete (Split Image) and several other worthwhile routes. It has shade in the morning and sun in the afternoon. Made in the Shade (12c-sport) and the 1st pitch of Cling On (5.8-trad) stay in the shade all day long.
The most direct approach to the area is over Asterisk Pass and then veering right. Keep going along the trail next to the cliff. When you reach a 90 degree classic-looking arete (Split Image), you are in the center of the area . Alternative routes to the area are either over Misery Ridge and then go upriver (left) or go around the Southern Tip (downriver) and head up to Asterisk Pass and then to the Snake Rock area.

This is a stout line, and it will test your head, stamina, and footwork.After climbing one of more sandbagged 5.10's in Smith, tricky crimping leads to arete where a rest can be found. A tricky clip and some intense pulling on side pulls and pockets leads to a dash to the next clipping stance. Rest here and ...[more] Browse More Classics in OR
