Description

Nearly everyone's first stop when climbing routes in Ibex, the Snakeskin Buttress is a nice introduction to the area. With such a large variety of ratings, its a pleasing spot for all visitors. The crags namesake is an excellent moderate, quite popular, and stands as a good measurement for all other lines at Ibex. The Snakeskin points east, so for a majority of the day this area stays warm and will receive plenty of hours of sun. It consists of the wall's south most corner and face and is separated, starting in the small recess left of the Syringe.

Getting There

Drive north past the main bouldering area towards the flanks of the largest wall. Park and locate the crag. Snakeskin Buttress is the recessed area set back, but attached to the Severity Desparity Wall.
