This is a very beautiful climb that follows a narrow cleft in the rock that tops out in the same place that the hike into Snyder Falls meets the stream bed. Both Snyder Creek climbs are very unique and well worth experiencing. Snyder Cleft is harder and on warm days wet, hollow, and run out. The chockstone move at the halfway point is protected with an angle and was very much appreciated by my lead climber. The top of the second pitch, around a second chockstone was not so friendly this warm day.


Park at the same local as Snyder Falls and where the trail heads right towards the rock slabs hang a left into the stream bed to the cleft. Obvious.


Screws, 1 piton. Some rock pro for the second belay.
