Access Issue: Must Register! Private Property-The Pond, Atlantis and Mine Area
Climbing at The Pond, Atlantis and Mine Area are private property, and now requires that you register in order to gain legal access. This is an easy process. You can do this at:queencreekclimbing.com. This is a one-time and free process so once you are registered you are good to go.
Chocolate covered as in yummy food, scorpions as in the thing Marcy scared out of the crack. Route could still use some cleaning, but provides an easier trad lead than some others. Cleaner climbing starting in the right-leaning crack from the base, rather than the dihedral, up 20' to ledge, face and arete to another ledge, then a straight up crack to the belay anchors for Frosted Snakes. Will set up rap anchor from there to rap route, but for now rap into the "chasm" from the rings that lead to the base of Centipede Corner and Frosted Snakes.
Directly uphill from the east side of Entrance Tower, it's the west-facing cliff of the Frosted Snakes fin. The line is clearly visible from the upslope region of Entrance and the climb starts about 20' to the right of the trail up to The Lunchbox proper.
Doubles of .25 to #2, a #3 and depending on your climbing style, a few medium stoppers.
