Look for a series of bamboo-pipe-looking rock features going up a vertical wall to a bulge. Steep vertical edging above the pipes.
In front of the boulders on the trail. Starts in the tiered flat area.

Jugs, pockets, and 2" diameter columns...oh my. The rating on this one is way off. If you think this is 6b+ then climb the 6c+ to the left. Shouldn't be too much harder, right? Night and day. Could be the easiest 6b in Thailand next to the hardest 6c in Thailand. Fun route, one route everyone can get up. The climb to the left will bring you back to reality.

Augie, nice job on the climb immediately to the left of Snow. I still have no idea on the name. I've tried to redpoint that one 5 times and don't feel anywhere close. It is continuous, steep, and not littered with jugs and rests like Missing Snow. The insecurity and route finding at the finish combined with a massive pump kills me every time.
We all have different experiences on these climbs. Like any climb, if you find the right holds and the right sequence it can make a substantial difference in difficulty. I only gave my honest opinion of the climb and I didn't mean to sandbag, I truly feel it is the softest climb in tonsai relative to its grade. Wake and Bake is a close second.
Did you try Lars & Lars (7a) up the trail? Great route, tricky and balancy...very different than most climbs in the area. I have not gotten that either.

It's pretty easy to get the crux sequence messed up on Missing Snow. The moves are very easy... but only if you go through them correctly. I used to get on this climb when I was hungover... just to wake up... so I've been on it a lot. I don't think it's any softer than the rest of the climbs on the Peninsula.
I started a list off the top of my head of climbs that seem soft but it just got too long. Instead, maybe we should have a list of climbs where the grades are actually legit...

The pockets are deep and bomber, but the pump factor is still high. Probably my favorite onsight ever. I'd call it solid 10d. The route to the left is killer too, definitely harder-11b/c with a very techy crux up high.
