Description 

From the P1 anchor on Snowflake climb up and right to the base of the obvious crack. Climb the face to the left of the crack for the first couple moves and step into the crack. Enjoyable climbing leads to a fixed pin (possibly tied off with sling and biner). A tricky move (crux?) gains easier climbing, a placement, some more pins, and finally a bulging short headwall. Climb past two bolts, exiting right and back left passing a pin to a fixed anchor. Alternatively, big moves straight up from the last bolt lead to easier climbing and the previously mentioned anchor (5.10d).

Location 

Start: From the P1 anchor on Snowflake
Descent: Two single 60m rope rappels lead to the ground

Protection
