BETA PHOTO: Green - Hoop Snake. White - Peanut Butter Bucket.

Description 

The first move is a reachy step-jump to a solid, horizontal crimp. Match hands in the crack and shimmy them up as the crack runs up and to the right. The quality of handholds gets worse higher on the crack. The crux is the dyno to the top of the first ledge; afterwards, the climb gets significantly easier.

Location 

Located to the left of Peanut Butter Bucket, where the wall becomes a broken slab.

Protection 

A large pine tree makes a great anchor at the very top of the crag. Twenty foot slings for TR.
