(3) Snake Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Most of the Snake Wall Climbs
The third area if entering from the west, starting just past the rock tower. Approximately 8 climbs ranging from 5.8 to 5.11A. The wall is distinguished by 2 large roofs above and to the right of the rock tower. Several routes here are partially bolted, but require some gear placement. Some pure trad climbs as well.
If approaching from the west, take the third side trail towards the rock. This will be just past the rock tower/"Middle Earth." The two large roofs above and to the right of the rock tower help distinguish it. Some climbs start from a ledge up and to the right of the belay platform for Snake Face/Snake Roof. It's a 4th class scramble to the start of these climbs and you may want to build a belay anchor with some gear for these. Approximately 5 - 10 min from the west parking area. Trail may be very slippery if wet/muddy.
Weather station 2.6 miles from here

Between Helms Deep and Snake Face, there is a very blocky and broken crack/dihedral system going straight up and over a bulge at the top, above where the Snake Face anchors would be. The crack is fairly clean, and has lots of good gear placements from small cams to 3" or so. Lots of nut placements. You can go all the way to the top, over the bulge, or cut over to the Snake Face anchors when you reach their level....[more] Browse More Classics in WA
