Snedegar's Nose is one of the few true "ridge" routes at the Lake, making it a unique experience. Climb up the obvious ridge using the corner and ledges. Protection on lead can be a little sparse, but using a top rope sets you up for a nice big pendulum fall.

Very little pro, I got two pieces in total. Good climbing nonetheless.
