Access Issue: 2017 Seasonal Closures - Partial Closure Lifting Details

Description [Edit]

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.

Location [Edit]

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.

Protection [Edit]

Pad.

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
