The Paper Route
|1,275 page views|
The crux is a bouldery start to the first bolt, then it is fairly easy cruising the rest of the way to the anchors( probably 5.6 to 5.7 after the start).
The rock is sharp and rough, but reasonably solid. Small, sand-sized particles fell throughout our climbing, but nothing large (shop goggles would have been appreciated for the belayers, actually).
9 bolts to chain anchors.
This is the third-from-left route at The Jobsite, at the far left side of the area.

For what it's worth, someone rated this 5.10a in Rockclimbing.com's database. I didn't think it was quite that hard, but I'm not very good at judging ratings.

I don't agree with a .10a rating on this climb. The start is bouldery with a few power moves, but can be easily moved through.

I would agree that it is nowhere near 5.10. In fact when I was first told about the route right after the FA I was told it was hard 5.7. The opening move is a bit bouldery, but after the 3rd move, it is easy sailing to the top.
This is the best first pitch to Snatch in my opinion.

The first move is about 5.9. Pretty good route.

With all the traffic this route gets it is pretty clean now.
