Description

Last fall we decided to go check out all the routes at "Dan and Jerry's Playground" listed in the Supertopo guidebook. Most of the routes were forgettable, but Proud Snapper stands out among the rest as a high-quality pitch.

About 100 yards left of Demon's Delight is a blocky terrace. Scramble up to the top of the terrace where there are some trees to sit in and belay here. I recall the start being sort of funky with a couple different options. Climb past a few bolts heading for the steep left-facing and left-arching dihedral above. The overhanging corner is wild and fun. Good jams and good face holds abound, but it gets sort of pumpy near the top.

Protection

3 bolts, gear to 3", 2 bolt anchor/rap

I thought the supertopo gear recommendation was spot on for this route, especially if you want to sew it up. My only comment would be to bring a few extra alpine draws or even regular draws to extend off of the bolts and gear since this route moves around a bit. There's gear and jugs before and after the crux, making this a comfortable lead. Apr 21, 2014

Got lured into a left arching lieback flake after the face moves, gone off route into extremely loose and hollow territory, stay to the corner! Apr 25, 2013
