BETA PHOTO: Snark Hunt starts below the bushes near a small fl...

Description 

Start up a slab below some bushes on a large ledge. Climb past two bolts, then negotiate the prickly bushes. I traversed below them. From the ledge, join with Dam The Water Board up to the anchor.

The crux comes before the first bolt, but there is a flake and a thin crack for gear.

Other than the bushes, I thought this is a pretty good route.

Location 

See the photo. Snark Hunt is between The Leper and Dam The Water Board. The route finishes at the Dam The Water Board anchor. Rap from there (a 60m works).

Protection 

2-bolts, light rack.
