Description Suggest change

Named Ophidiophobia (irrational fear of snakes) after the rattlesnake that wouldn't leave the base of the route and that I was accidentally lowered directly on top of.

P1) Hard moves off the ground and a sequence-y crux lead into sustained and interesting hands and wide-hands. Some of the most fun movement I've done on a Creek climb. 5.11+ 130'
P2) Pull the #3s roof, go through all the sizes down to tips, then a right-angling hand crack to a great ledge. 5.11+ 80'

Lead both pitches as one for a full-value route! Sling pieces in the chimney and the rope drag will be minimal.

Might be able to rap twice with a 70m, but this was put up with an 80.

Location Suggest change

Go left from the top of the approach trail. This is the crack splitting the face left of Insane in the Membrain. Anchors should be visible under a large roof that crosses the full face. If you get to the unnamed hand crack, you've gone too far.

Protection Suggest change

.1-4, heavier on 3s for P1, less than .3 for P2
