The Snakepit Rock Climbing
The Snakepit (from Gorilla Cliffs).
Get's sun for the better part of the day. Not one of the best cliffs up here, but there are a few quality lines. Many of the lines require an A0 start.
Gets sun around 10am in the dead of winter.
The approach for this cliff is the same as for the Gorilla Cliff. Continue up the road/wash from the foundation where the road turns to the right. After passing the first half of the Gorilla cliffs on the right, look for a trail at the far end of the Snakepit on the left. The first routes encountered from the trail are Sega, 5.11a and Prickler, 5.11a
