Description

It is possible parts of this route have been done before but who knows. There's some amount of loose rock, ledges, and pricker bushes to climb through but we mostly linked fun hand cracks on good stone.

Pitch 1: Broken face climbing leads to an open book corner (all hands and hard to see from the ground).
Pitch 2: Move the belay/thirdclass up to an obvious splitter crack (hands to ow). Belay on a ledge.
Pitch 3: A short face traverse left gains a handcrack/steep flake. Easier terrain leads to small peg cave, belay there.
Pitch 4: Face climbing leads to a right arching finger-hand crack. Belay on a ledge system and then move the belay right to a grey right facing corner.
Pitch 5: Steep, thin hands up the corner to a ledge.
Pitch 6: Fists/ow and hands continuing up the corner.
Pitch 7: Ledgy climbing up a broken chimney system leads to a short, unprotected squeeze.
Pitch 8: Climb the loose peg chimney with some steep moves around chockstones higher up. Tread lightly.

Morning shade and afternoon sun. See the topo.

Location

Start a few hundred feet lower than the old tire in the Dragon Point gully and climb up to the Dragon Point Overlook. You can see most of the features from the top of Black Snake.

Protection

Small to #4-5.
