Right hand continuation from the first pitch belay station of the Serpent. Climb past the 3rd bolt on the second pitch of the Serpent, then veer right. Steep start, then lower angle slabby up to steeper section, which calms down for the cruise to the bolted anchor. Nice.
Some small amount of loose rock to take care with on the rappel.
Caution: as of 13 August 2009, there was a cracked hand hold above the first bolt past the belay station atop the first pitch of the Serpent. Be solid and have your belayer pay close attention. Falling enroute to the second bolt from the 1st pitch belay could have SEVERE consequences as there's a flat ledge at the belay stance. Take care.
Right hand variation of the Serpent. Rappel route.
Bolt protected. Rappel anchor at top consisting of a pair of Fixe Super Shuts.
