Description

Amazing climb up some of the best limestone you could ever hold onto. Thin crimps lead up a dead vertical wall. The route feels a lot longer than it is, but there is a nice rest after the crux. The last few moves to the anchor require you to save a little...

Location

Left center of the wall. Snake Juice and Learning both share the same start.

Protection

10 bolts plus anchor

This was a heck of a route. I love this whole area. I haven't really found another spot in the canyon quite like it. The real business of the climb is pretty much bolts 7 and 8, and you get a great rest after that. I loved the finish off a really small, shallow two finger pocket. Probably a three star climb that gets a fourth star for its amazing location. Jul 8, 2012
