Description 

Crazy good face climb on the East wall of Snowshed.

I learned how to thumb press on the initial vexing move.

Slightly overhanging edges and flakes lead to a bouldery crux near the 3rd bolt. Save some gas for the top...don't blow the mantle...


Location 

Just left of Rage Reduction is this gorgeous face. Stick clip is not a bad idea.

Anchors at top; a bit sketch to set up a TR.

Protection 

Draws.

Hanger is VERY loose on first bolt, otherwise fun route, wish I could say I finished it.
