Fighting throught the East Overhang.

Seasonal Closures - all are lifted - 10/25/14 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

On the east overhang is the obvious line to the left of the moderate set of side-pulls and to the right of the arete/Nose Lunge line.

Start low, matched on a W-shaped crimp, pop right to a sloping ledge and then up on crimps.

Location 

The Mongoose Block is the first and largest boulder at The Snake Pits. This problem is on the overhanging, east face.

Protection 

Throw a pad on the exposed rocks and you should be fine.

I think this route needs a new name... where's the creativity?
