Two separate routes that when linked together make for a classic outing. Begin on the Snake Face just left of the arete formed by it and the Face of a Thousand Pitons.

P1: Climb the steep corners up to a nice ledge at a bolted anchor.

P2: Step off the belay and climb the right-facing flake up until reaching a thin crack out left. Follow this up past a dirty face to the top of the wall.

The cottonmouth-Venom link-up totals 3 pitches and ends up at the traffic jam. 3rd pitch follows a left leaning finger crack all the way to the traffic jam rappel anchors.
