Description 

A great climb! Challenging and delicate climbing up on to a hanging column (getting on the column is usually the crux) then up to the top of the ice, a little low angle terrain then up the dry dihedral to belay at a tree. If you climb at this grade, as soon as you see it you will want to climb it!

Location 

Located at the Hidden Crag. Walk to bottom of chain station parking area and turn in to the woods at the road sign. A super short, flat approach. Snaggle is the obvious short column that never touches down on the steep prow you should see as you approach the cliff. Descend by walking off climber's left or rap if you are worried about snow conditions on the descent (only a worry immediately after a big dump).

Protection 

Bugaboos - #4 LA depending on conditions, cams from red Alien to #3 Camalot, screws.

There are other climbs that form at this crag most reliably a WI4- to the right of Snaggle and a WI2/3 way at the right end around the final wall. They are worth doing if you are in the area and looking for that grade.
