DescriptionStart on the vertical/slabby face through good holds to the base of the overhang. Set up, make the clip, and dyno big to the left, aiming for a pocket on the arete. This hold is hard to see, and thus hard to stick, hence the name Snipe Hunt (after a few fruitless dynos you may start to wonder if you are trying to find a pocket that is not there.) Continue up the arete for a couple moves and then move slightly right as you head for the anchors. The crux is not the dyno, but while heading from the arete to the face on the right after the dyno. Hang on and don't run out of ammo before the hunt is over!
LocationThis route is on the West side of the boulder and is located on the right side of the prow next to the mossy gully, one route to the left of Subconscious Birdwatcher.
It is recommended to lower off from the anchors.
