Hairless is a fun pitch that shares the same start as 'Mr. Pitiful' but deviates to the right at the 4th bolt and heads up to a small flake.
The flake is protected by a pretty good pin that can be backed up with finger-sized gear. Layback up the flake, clip a bolt, and head up to a left-trending, finger crack that can take small gear. I found this to be surprisingly 'shouldery' for slab movement. Then cruise straight up to a tree that sometimes has webbing (usually crusty).
If the tree doesn't float your boat for rapping, you can climb a little higher to a good ledge and follow it to the right for about 30' to a bolted anchor.
This is located in a small zone that is approximately 60% or 70% towards the right side of the buttress. Snake Buttress is kind of split into 4 sections. From left to right, this would be the 3rd section.
Approximately 5 bolts, a pin at the crux, wires and small cams to #0.5 Camalot or so.
