Description 

I found the roof section of this climb to be really fun, and well protected. The crack widens as you go up into more of an off-width.

Location 

After walking by Easter Island area, take the first trail to the left. Continue to veer left, and scramble up a couple rocky sections. Carry on going this way until you get to a treed ledge (where there are anchors for the climbs below - new ones, not sure yet what they are). At this ledge, there are two parallel 'roof' cracks - Sniffler and Snorter. Sniffler is the right-hand crack.

Protection 

Anchor with chains, shared with Snorter. I'd bring some large cams - BD #3,#4. I placed a #4 at the roof section and then wished I'd had it higher up.
