There are several variations of this route that we used to do in the mid 1980s. This was the longest and I think I did the FA of this variation. The older route was called Snakeskin Suit and went straight up.

To fully appreciate this problem one should do the sit start from deepest chalked holds. Adds 4 or 5 moves and definitely adds to the pump factor. A highball bouldering problem in my opinion.

The key sidepull/gastone used on the straight up variation has flaked off. It makes that variation much much harder. It doesn't affect Venom at all
