Description 

This route is deceptively steep with sustained difficulties all the way to the end. Short though pretty stout! The crux is probably negotiating the ledge at bolt 3 and then dealing with the short hand crack above that.

Snowflake is the once a year second casking product Stranahans distillery offers. One barrel, one day to buy it, show up early on site to get one. Very exclusive, each year it is a bit different. Man I'd love to get my hands on a bottle. Any Denverites wanna stand in line for me?

Location 

This is a second pitch route. Access it by climbing La Phroaig, Stranahans, Oban or Glen Morangie. All these climbs lead to a large slanted ledge with a set of chains on the back wall, at the beginning of this climb.

Protection 

6 clips, sport anchor also chains at the base for belaying and lowering back to the ground.
