Basically you locate Hang on to your ego and climb the adjacent chimmney system, start traversing right for about 11 pitches...


Put by Sites and Martin over the course of several trips this is surely the longest route in Tennessee. Its a traverse but so what. These guys thought outside the box and put up a great voyage through some extremely challenging terrain. Thin face, wide crack, pumping footless climbing. This climb will reward those seeking adventure with some real good memories.

Has probably never seen a one day ascent. Named for a snake skin found over 100' up a cliff in overhanging terrain.
