Description

This is a great route at the grade, fun moves on really clean rock. A great lead for beginners or a nice warm up for the day. This is the right hand line of the 2 in the bowl.

Location

on the uphill end of the buttress, this climb is located on a lower angle bowl shaped wall. do some 4th class moves to get to the base, marked by a large dead juniper tree. This is the right line of the two sport routes.

Protection

quickdraws, chain anchors

This line has its own set of anchors, consisting of new hangers and single quicklinks, allowing both Snake Eye and Don't Put Your Hand in it to be independently climbed/top-roped. The single links on the anchor hangers will twist the crap out of your rope when you go to lower or rap off.

Good, steep 5.8 pulling that is more safely bolted than its neighbor to the left. Jun 27, 2016
