Description 

Snapdragons is a game where the players attempt to snatch raisins out of a bowl filled with brandy that's lit on fire.

An incredibly aesthetic line with multiple cruxes that will test your finesse and endurance. Not over until you clip the chains.

A heady but easy start leads to the first bolt about 20 feet up. Crank past some thin edges in a shallow corner and rest up on a good horizontal crack. A few bolts of fun moves on good holds leads to a rest hold below the gaston section. Burl past the gaston, and keep moving past pumpy edges to better holds below the first roof. Keep moving past decent finger buckets to another huge jug over the roof. Cut right and follow decent rails to a rest below the next crux. Pumpy sidepulls and thin edges over a roof gain another rail with poor feet. Try to recover, then throw a heel and do a few tricky moves to another rest with terrible feet. Traverse a little right on a rail, recover if you can, then build up on the double gastons, and gun to the top.

Don't forget to enjoy the view.
