Laura looking strong on Snipe Hunter.


This route has three good resting locations. The first one is on a small ledge between the second and third bold. The second one is a small cave, between bolt 3 and 4, that allows for a no-hand rest. The third rest, if needed, requires a bit of a detour to the left of the route below the second to last bolt.


This is the first route to the right of Corporate Greed (5.9).


10 bolts with chain anchors at the top.

Awesome route. Good resting positions, nice boulder problem-ish crux, decently tall.

Dangerous runout. Don't fall after the second bolt.

Sweet azz route! Very similar to "The Trill of the Drill" but a slight bit harder. Both routes have three good rests with the crux coming right after a no-hands rest on both. The crux is a little longer and a little more stout/powerful on Snipe Hunter, so I feel it warrants 12c for the area.... No matter the grade, this is a great route on an awesome/ beautiful wall. A must do!
