Description 

The third area if entering from the west, starting just past the rock tower. Approximately 8 climbs ranging from 5.8 to 5.11A. The wall is distinguished by 2 large roofs above and to the right of the rock tower. Several routes here are partially bolted, but require some gear placement. Some pure trad climbs as well.

Getting There 

If approaching from the west, take the third side trail towards the rock. This will be just past the rock tower/"Middle Earth." The two large roofs above and to the right of the rock tower help distinguish it. Some climbs start from a ledge up and to the right of the belay platform for Snake Face/Snake Roof. It's a 4th class scramble to the start of these climbs and you may want to build a belay anchor with some gear for these. Approximately 5 - 10 min from the west parking area. Trail may be very slippery if wet/muddy.

Snake Roof 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  WA : Southwest Cascades : ... : (3) Snake Wall
Start below the obvious 1st roof and head up the fun & easy dihedral. When you hit the roof, traverse left and pull up and over. Traverse back to the right under the 2nd roof towards the lone bolt. Move up & over the roof to find the Snake Face anchors. Negotiating the roofs will obviously be the cruxes....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
