Getting weather forecast...

We accidently saw something... skreetch!

My partner and I had a reasonable day on the east side. after getting back in the car to drive back to the camp site from moses springs trailhead we happened to pull to a stop at a spot that caught our attention.
the most obvious line was a very dangerous crack line that was held together by chossy hollow holds, moss, and small plants. in our first look at it, I had gotten on the wall as a tease to see if I wanted to get my trad rack and a hold blew out on me. Currently the only crack that's probably been lead is Flake don't break!

Getting There

"Snake Bend Wall is visible from the road that leads up to the normal East Side parking area. It is on the left, 0.7 mile after the stone-lined bridge across Chalone Creek (where the road forks on the drive in to the East Side). Park for Snake Bend Wall in one of the normal East Side parking areas. Approach by hiking down the Bear Gulch Trail (downstream, away from the “normal” Bear Gulch climbing areas). This trail crosses two foot-bridges before crossing over a paved, employee housing driveway. Continue another 125 yards from the driveway before reaching a third bridge. This bridge is quickly followed by a fourth bridge. The trail then immediately curves right. Snake Bend Wall is across the creek from this bend, facing northeast, right at the trail."
