Description

Start below the obvious 1st roof and head up the fun & easy dihedral. When you hit the roof, traverse left and pull up and over. Traverse back to the right under the 2nd roof towards the lone bolt. Move up & over the roof to find the Snake Face anchors. Negotiating the roofs will obviously be the cruxes.

Location

Start directly below the obvious roof. Shares anchors with Snake Face (above the 2nd roof).

Protection

Gear to 2.5" Does have 1 bolt near the 2nd roof crux. Can also be TR'd after climbing Snake Face (5.9), as they share the same anchors.

I think Snake Face to the left is much better. That being said, if you lead Snake Face to try and TR this route you need to be aware of the legitimate potential for a swinging fall into the tree nearby. It would be a pretty nasty hit. Put some directionals in if you plan to do this. Aug 14, 2016
Small TCU's come in handy on this climb. Clipping most of the gear with runners will keep the rope drag manageable.
