Order Wrong? Sort Routes


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.

Getting There

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.

It's a 5.10a put up by Todd Swain. Don't have the name. May 10, 2010
Thanks Bob, posted under "Unknown". May 10, 2010
I believe there is an 11ish just to the left of this unnamed 10a. It begins with two bolts at the same height along a juggy traverse then proceeds into a left heel hook and left hand flake pull up...
What would you guys rate that route? Jan 15, 2012
NLi10Me, not sure where you're talking about...are you thinking of the route left of Fresno (10a) on the far, far left (east) side of the cliff, up a conrner/roof, 4 bolts I believe? Jan 15, 2012
