The north Face of Snickers is a wall that is always in the shade and consequently nice on hot days. It is right next to the southwest side of Little Hunk, so it's a location with shade and sun in close proximity. The rock features a lot of good gray varnish, and is heavily lichenated in spots. Destination routes include the cracks Funny Bone (5.8), Norwegian Wood (5.9) and Don't Think Just Jump (5.10a) and Crime of the Century (5.11a). There are a couple of newer bolted routes as well - Humerous (5.10b) and Joyride (5.11c). This is a good area for children as there are no chasms or drop-offs and the car is never too far away.
Located 1/4 mile directly east of Echo Rock and south of Little Hunk. The Vogel book shows all routes left of "Don't Think, Just Jump" incorrectly. The Bartlett Book doesn't really show good detail of the face but is usable to figure out the routes.

About 15' right of Humerous (5.10a) and almost directly behind a small scrub oak with a broken trunk is this fun route with complex and challenging moves. Scamper up a short left-facing corner to a stance below a shallow, oblique corner which is stemmed to another small stance. From here make some thoughtful moves (5.10-) up and left to get established in the left of two slanting crack systems which ends at a ledge; at the crux shorter climbers are advised to take a hint from the ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
