Feast of Snakes, 5.11

3rd Pitch- 15m- 5.11/ Climb up easy ground right and make a face traverse left into the corner below the roof. Under cling the roof while transitioning into hard lay back moves to swing your left knee into the crack and gain a hand stack above the roof. A C4 #4 or #5 protects this move at the pinch of the roof. Make several other hard moves as the crack narrows and eventually move left to a comfortable ledge and fixed belay. You can actually rap a full 200’ from here to reach the ground on descent.

Makes me tremble...

just looking at it!
Awful overhanging off-width. You couldn't catch me dead on a route like this even when I could do 11s during the stone age.
Great stuff Dow

Re: Makes me tremble...

it was a bit dirty Marc and prob not a wise idea for us to climb it either......most folks just do the first pitch of this route...I always have to see all the rides in the park!!! thank god I never went to Disney World. Cheers
