Description 

Snickers is a very large and complex formation with routes on all of it's various exposures, but the two main areas of interest are the North Face and the South Face.


Getting There 

North Face approach: From the large gravel lot north of Echo Tee follow a well-marked trail east past the south face of Echo Cove and past the south end of Echo Rock into an open area. Continue east as you pass near the base of Mounds and then make a right to reach the wall. Approach time is about 10-15 minutes from the car.

South Face approach: Approach as for Little Rock Candy Mountain but continue east on a trail for another 100 meters or so until you come to the box canyon routes and then make a left (heading north); some scrambling is needed to access these routes.

For the climbs in the vicinity of Sweet Ginger continue east another 100 meters along the trail and then approach up easy blocks and slabs to the base. It's also possible to approach this area from the east along an old road/wash from the vicinity of More Monkey Than Funky. Approach time is about 10-15 minutes from the car.
