"I wish some day to make a route, and from the summit let fall a drop of water, and this is where my route will have gone" -- Emilio Comici
Of all the expanse of rock and places to climb on the Dead Snag, this stretch contains some of the best rock, most improbable moves (that are pretty easy) and highest angle of climbing.
Two 100+ pitches with a stance belay in the middle. This might share space with Tigers Den?
I found this route while adventure soloing. Kept climbing higher and higher thinking it would get ugly and I could traverse off. Never got hard, never traversed off - so - I came back with my son and lead it as a 'sort of' real climb.
Step back from the start and draw an imaginary straight line up to the big diving board block on the top that overhangs the face (this block is about 20' left of the top out of Steorts).
Follow this exact line - not varying more than 5' to the left or the right. If you wander, your off route. Its a direct route, a directissama, a Comici route!
