P1 - 5.6/7R with relatively sparce natural pro until you get to a rusty pin where you step left on to a thin sloping dike, 5.8R, and diagonal up to a 2 bolt belay. P2 up a 5.8R slab to a corner with a much appreciated #2 set, dance around the corner onto a sea of granite waves, 5.2. Move up slightly left to a good natural ledge with good sets. P3 a short vertical Dike 5.9R (tasty)and onto a diagonal dike that runs up to the 4th belay of Snake Dike, 5.2R. There are a couple of bolts along this run, and you will need to use one of them for a belay, as a 70 meter rope is still short. From there finish on Snake Hike


When Snake Dike is full and you are feeling a bit more adventurous, the next route to the left is Deuceldike. This will run you around the first 4 pitches of Snake Dike and land you where the route turns to 5.3-. At this point it is easy to share space.


Maybe 2 bolts per pitch, and sparse natural protection (only on the first 2 pitches) pieces #2 and smaller

There are no new bolts on P1 1, and the pin that exists looks to be a confidence only piece, but the belay stance is good. P2 has a good placement then run out to a good natural belay skinny ledge. P3 has a good (new looking) bolt in middle of the 5.9 vertical dike, and the a couple of old pins to a single "newish" bolt halfway up the inclined "sidewalk". The pins I refer to are old rusty bolts. Yes we climbed it 4/24/15. Jun 1, 2015

Hey Paul,

Did you climb this route recently?

I believe that roger Brown replaced the bolts on this and most of the other routes in the area a few years ago. Apr 29, 2015
