Milksnake is a cool trad route that sees little traffic.

Start in the same techy corner as for Milktoast (5.10d) past 3 bolts and the crux of this route to the roof. As you get to the roof rather than going left as you would for that route break right up a crack/steep ramp (protects well with trad gear) that is more balancy and tricky than hard. Follow this system to the top of the cliff and the anchor.


Start as For Milktoast and break right at the roof.


3 bolts and trad gear (small rack of nuts and cams, nothing big needed). Anchors are back from the edge. Extend them with slings.

Super enjoyable route, and glad to have done it. If you take some nuts and a BD .5 you'll be fine.
