Description 

BABY SNAKES 5.10a * (2 pitches) G
This is a good trad route that follows the cracks and corners right of the open Viper's mouth to the large pine on top.

P1 (120', 5.8) - From the lower ledge (directly above "Snake Pit"), climb the steep left facing corner and belay in the alcove.
P2 (50', 5.10a) - Follow the overhanging corner left (#3 camalot needed here) and pull around the roof to belay above at the huge pine.

Note; it is possible to walk off to the east from the top of the 1st pitch (and so avoid the crux).

Location 

Follows the cracks and corners right of the open Viper's mouth to the large pine on top. Begin at the ledge atop the lower face.

Protection 

wide range of gear (including #3 camalot)
