Description 

Short route, but packs a punch right off the deck, pure bouldering style. Best to stick clip the first bolt, the opening moves are pretty intense and the bolt is quite high. Crux is the first two bolts and eases back some for the last two.

Location 

Directly under the snag

Protection 

4 bolts to super shuts.

Paul Humphrey and I called this one "Snagger" when I bolted it. We never got around to redpointing it, so Zach snagged the FA. Great bouldery moves!

Rick, that's a cool little story, i wondered the history of this route the whole time i was projecting it. Such a mystery when there is no chalk on the holds. It is such a good route and should get done more. thanks for bolting it.

What a sweet route!! The crux was definitely the last move up to the first bolt. Definitely use a stick clip otherwise the crux is unprotected.

The climbing is a bit generic, but enjoyable. Agreed that the hardest move is down low, though the real crux is finding the holds as this route is chalkless and covered in moss. Stays on you to the chains. The best part of this route is chimneying against the snag as you clip the chains!

You must have moved right near the top? Moving right into the moss and off the bolt line, is easier, but very grungy. Staying in the bolt line is clear of any moss and really fun. I really want to know what hold I must be missing in the crux to make it feel 12-.

The natural stick clip at the base was broken yesterday, so make sure to find one, bring one, or stand on someone's shoulders as we did.
