Description

Climb the crack up to the where the crack resembles an Oroboros(Ancient symbol of a Dragon eating his own tail), splitting left & right, thanrejoining about 10 feet higher. Climb either crack, the right crack is a bit harder. Follow hand jams up, while making sure to peek right around arete to find the anchors (Shares anchors with C.C.R.D. & Belly of the Beast).

Protection

several larger cams Needed.

Awkward start up questionable chunks and moss. After you step left under the roof, definitely try to stick with the right crack. Easy crack climbing up to the anchor which is hidden around the corner, requiring a precarious step. Jul 4, 2017

If you enjoyed Belly of the Beast, you'll enjoy Oroboros. I thought the start and finish were the crux; the middle is pure fun.

Bring more dupes of larger sizes than you would for Belly. The final traverse is bolt-protected (if you wish). Jun 4, 2018
