DescriptionTAKE RATING of 5.4-5.5 WITH A GRAIN OF SALT, IT MAY BE VERY "Old School"!
A very old route that climbs the large corner (see Photo ) which is hidden from view from Blueberry Knoll. Climb the large corner on mostly clean rock, after 4-6 pitches ('modern length pitches') the "Serpent's Head will be reached. (i.e. the large flat area on the "nose". Here best to climb up directly on a ridge (rib) ending on some beautiful Class 4 climbing.
Intercept the Howe Peaks Trail for descent.
