Description

Snake Skin Slab is one of the more difficult routes on the left side of the crag. The crux is thin face climbing just past the first bolt (which is a little easier if you use holds off to the right of the bolt line). Sustained climbing past three more bolts leads to the anchors. There is a small runout between the last bolt and the anchors that can be protected with a small cam.

Location

Located on the left side of 5.8 Crag, just right of Asbury Park. Starts at a flake behind a double trunk tree.

Protection

Four bolts to Quick Clip anchors.
Cool route. I liked it more than Toxic Gumbo. Jul 4, 2017

If you're feeling sketched, bring a 0.5 camelot for the thin crack between the last bolt and the anchors. Apr 24, 2011

Such an awesome climb. It might be a little sketch for some people but you have to do it. May 12, 2009

This route is bolted in true Shimberg style run out just enough, but still being safe. The last bolts and anchors seem really far but the jugs make it go by quick. Dec 1, 2008
