I am posting this because I'd like to learn more about the FAist and if it might happen to have a name!

Sit start begins with a solid four-pad LH sloper and a thin, pinchable flake for the RH. Two moderate leftward LH bumps to slopey sidepulls will set you up for the crux: a final RH compression sloper, and a long LH throw to a diagonal jug / fatty, neutral edge.

The heelhook helps early; a slight counterclockwise spin on the rockover helps tremendously at the finish.

Precise hand placements and thumb catches make the problem.


Sit start begins on the northeast corner of the bloc. If you are standing and facing the leftmost edge of the north face downclimb, take a few more steps clockwise and you're there.

Like most of the Snake Pits lines, no idea about the FA, but I do know the line well, and the grade seems apt. Sep 9, 2011
