Description

On the east overhang is the obvious line to the left of the moderate set of side-pulls and to the right of the arete/Nose Lunge line.

Start low, matched on a W-shaped crimp, pop right to a sloping ledge and then up on crimps.

Location

The Mongoose Block is the first and largest boulder at The Snake Pits. This problem is on the overhanging, east face.

Protection

Throw a pad on the exposed rocks and you should be fine.

Photos

I went straight up rather than out right like the pictures described, and this is probably more in the V9 or even 10 range for me. It was humid when I sent, so it is probably 9. Grab a nasty left dimple, and get into nasty right sidepull. Then bump right to sharp pinch. Top out on jugs. Jul 9, 2015

I think this route needs a new name... where's the creativity? Nov 15, 2014
