Description

A great route with the sole flaw of not being longer. This route is pretty good and offers good protection.
Negotiate your way up to the shallow slot above the small tree a body length above the ground, then pass the crux getting out of the wide spot and into the crack above. A set of anchors is at the top to belay and rap from.

Location

Walk left in the main amphitheatre about 1/2 way to the end, passing the distinctive American Wall and American Crack. Continue on the trail passing between a large flat boulder and the main cliff and around a small protrudance a short distance. You will immediately pass a left-facing corner (Calypso III) and then see a right leaning crack with a small tree growing on a chockstone near the bottom of it. The crack is briefly a slot, then goes to a more uniform crack and more vertical above. This is the route "Snake, 5.8."

Protection

A rack of stoppers and cams to 3"
