Yes, you have spotted both "Salathe" (originally "the Southwest Face" in Roper) and "Snake in the Grass." You can just make out the crux of "Salathe" in Andy's photo.

I really oughta post a description of "Salathe" ... such a stunning route (with a caveat about the belays). Jun 19, 2008

Is the right facing corner on the left side of the photo the Salathe Route (in the Don Reid guide)? I would guess it is. I'm talking about the farthest right such corner, not the huge one on the left edge, which may be the route "Snake in the Grass". Jun 18, 2008
