A fun and direct line up the left side of the Snakeskins Wall, taking you to a proud perch at the top of the cliff where only the Peregrines dare to dwell. From the shady base camp area where the trail comes up, look for a ledge/alcove about 80 feet up beneath the steep headwall that guards the clifftop.  The alcove has vegetation (and a tree stump) and is noteworthy also because there is a broken blocky roof feature you'll be climbing, followed by crack system up to a two-bolt anchor.  The Wolfgang Marten ascends the lower faces of the cliff on slopey horizontals and a few deep definite incuts, passing a couple of bolts and a few gear placements.  The route passes through said tree-stump alcove and up through the notch where there is this neat triangular wedged chockstone and a finger crack.  You'll love the position hanging from that anchor, looking left and right across the wide expanse of spectacular Kinsman Notch!   A single 70 gets you down, pretty close, with stretch and a small down climb, or take your 60m rap to a midway belay station a little to climber's left.


Straight up the wall from where the trail hits the cliff line, which is left side of Snakeskins area. 


Regular trad rack.
