Start below diehedral/crack right of Snowblower. Work your way up to the roof through blocky overhanging terrain. Ascend the dihedral/overhang through a wide crack. once you are above the roof, climb up and left towards a pin, past a good 3" horizontal crack. climb a nice 9+ crux on face moves past the pin, and then up the bucket strewn face to the top. Finishes right of Snowblower.

Rhodey Corner (FA Mike Artz in early 80s) climbs the same start and continues up the vegetated corner/crack. It was the first route put up at lower hidden. Originally graded 5.8


Start @ obvious left facing corner system right of Snowblower, then head left onto orange face past a pin. Finishes 10' right of Snowblower.


Normal trad rack, one fixed pin (lost arrow still in good shape)

Linking the start of Snowblower to the finish of Steamroller is how I usually lead this route. Avoids the munge-a-delic burly roof move through Rhodey Corner by climbing past first bolt of Snowblower. Once you pull the snowblower roof, traverse right on gear, then climb straight up Steamroller past pin.

makes for a nice 5.10 lead.
