Description Suggest change

Snake Watching is the farthest left route on Overhang Rock. It is the "Eighth Day" of the Flatirons.

Scramble up easy 5th class to get to the first bolt. A three move boulder problem takes you up and over the initial overhang. From here, it's crimp, crimp, and more crimp for about a mile to anchors just below the summit. I don't know if something broke, but I found there to be a pretty hard boulder problem at about the 11th bolt. The rock is a little friable in spots. I could not get to the ground with a 70 meter cord, so bring an 80 meter cord or use the lowering station midway up.

Protection Suggest change

15 bolts to a two bolt anchor. There is a midway anchor at the 8th or 9th bolt.
