Description

A fun, moderate, bolted, multi-pitch route on less-than-stellar quartzite. Snatch adds two pitches above the routes on the left side of The Jobsite.

P1 Climb any of the four right-most bolted routes on The Jobsite’s left side, clip the chains and keep climbing to the base of Snatch proper. You’ll see hanger-and-ring anchors at the base of a wide dihedral with a black streak down it, just below a small bush. Approximately 75 feet.

P2 Make a tenuous couple of moves through some crumbly rock to the first bolt and then continue up through seven more bolts of better rock. The crux is a small overhang after the last bolt, then onto a ledge with the anchors. Approximately 80 feet.

P3 Follow the first three bolts, angling slightly left and then bear right a bit for the next couple of bolts. Pass to the right of a gnarled juniper and follow the last two bolts up a shallow trough. Continue in line with the final two bolts to the chains. Approximately 100 feet.

To belay the second up P3 you’ll probably want to extend from the chains a few feet to stand comfortably on a ledge.

Descend via three single-rope rappels.

Location

Located on the darker quartzite above the left side of The Jobsite. Climb one of the four right-most bolted routes on the left side (the two left-most routes won’t work).

Protection

P1 9 to 10 bolts (depending on the route chosen), hanger-and-ring anchors
P2 8 bolts, hanger-and-ring anchors
P3 8 bolts, hanger-and-chain anchors

A single 60m rope is sufficient.
