Seven soloists on Snake's Head (5.5X).


About as Traditional as it gets. About 100' left of S-Wall, from an alcove climb up a crack up to the big face and top out.


Start 100' left of S-Wall. Top out, make the jump across and scramble over to the Head Wall anchors and rap.

There are a variety of ways to get to the route but the fun of it begins on the giant ramp that is on the left side of Baldy (from the parking lot) at the very top.

Snake's Head is best done early in the day, before the wind picks up.

The climbing may not be spectacular but the position and boulder hop seal the deal. Classic.
