An impressive route with a distinctive yellow-green phlegmy color. The Lewis/Wilcox book grades this as WI3-5.

P1 (WI3): Climb the left side of the rock buttress. Belay at a tree on the ledge.

P1 (WI4): Climb the pillar on the right side of the rock buttress. At the top, traverse left on lower-angle ice and belay at a tree on the ledge.

P2: Climb the upper pillar to the trees.

Rappel or walk off.


From the parking lot at the top of Crawford Notch, walk south on the railroad tracks through a cut in the rock and a bit further. The Snot Rocket is very obvious on your right, immediately after crossing the 75-100ft-long trestle.


Standard ice rack plus some rock gear if you fancy the right-side mixed variation. There is supposed to be a piton 25 feet up on the first pitch (right side).
