BETA PHOTO: Climbing Snake Slide 5.8
  • Access is limited in the spring and summer due to peregrine falcon nesting; so there are some closures. Checking with the Adirondack Climbers Coalition or the NYDEC can provide the closure status.
  • Seasonal Peregrine Falcon Closures MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    This route climbs the shallow left facing corner to the south of the Positive Thinking face and Gamesmanship.

    The entire thing felt a little cruxy and sandbagged. Many of the stances felt tenuous and gear a little difficult. It's a hard lead for a 5.8 climber.


    Protection 

    Medium sized nuts or small cams (<.5). The anchor is bolted and you could rappel from there.

    Definitely sustained with tenuous stances and harder to place gear.
