Ascent Trip Report

Rock climbed the route Snake Dike - 5.7R with Jon Neace 21 years after doing the NW Face. One advantage of this is don't need a permit.
Great climb on a great weather day. I led odd pitches - onsighted all and actually felt fairly casual. Slabs went on forever after the technical climbing was over.
