Snake Slide

5.8, Trad, 50 ft,  Avg: 2.1 from 7 votes
FA: Geoff Smith
New York > Adirondacks > A: Lake Champla… > Poke-O-Moonshine > Poke-O-Moonshine Main…
Access Issue: Peregrine closures and approach trail issues Details


This route climbs the shallow left facing corner to the south of the Positive Thinking face and Gamesmanship.

The entire thing felt a little cruxy and sandbagged. Many of the stances felt tenuous and gear a little difficult. It's a hard lead for a 5.8 climber.


Medium sized nuts or small cams (<.5). The anchor is bolted and you could rappel from there.

So I met this guy (Geoff Smith) at a wedding over the weekend and had an hour or so to kill the next day and that I might check out poke-o on the way home, he mentioned this little .7 that I should route...sandbag Oct 3, 2010
