Description

If masochistic, burly, slab climbing is your thing, then why are you visiting the chocolate factory? Regardless, this one is for you!

An amazing route that I unfortunately don't have much info on. The Ray Ellington guidebook reads something like "This line will probably shut you down, and probably make you cry". With a description like that you have to get on it, right?

The aggressive start only yields to more aggressive slab, delicate climbing, pinching tiny iron oxide deposits, an amazing technical challenge! The crux for me was either the awkward steep mantle, or clipping bolt 5/6... hate to take a real whip on this guy!

This one definitely reminds you why you love/hate climbing. Its ok if it makes you cry

Location

The menacing slab just to the left of the wonkaholic corner. pretty obvious

Protection

10 bolts?

This climb is really good despite the reputation. You just have to like slab climbing to appreciate it. Feels like a more secure version of Watt's Tots at Smith Rock. I thought it felt a little sandy for 12a. Mar 28, 2015
The guidebook description just made me want it more. Clipping the second bolt was desperate for me, I climbed the arête and pre hung the draws. Final roof still requires careful footwork. This took me several tries over a few days. Guidebook gives Snozzberries same grade. Not even close. 12b? Nov 29, 2015
Snozzberries is considered very soft for 12a. I wouldn't use it as your benchmark. Dec 3, 2015
