Takes the steep crack through the bulge left of Snake Charmer.

Scramble up to the platform. Straight up the face to the roof. Pull through the roof (micro cams for pro) to the short, fierce crack. Continue up the featured recess then step 1.5m left and straight to the top.

Consensus grading required. Height, finger size and faith in small gear might affect how hard it feels.

Takes a central line up the buttress to right the King Cobra Prow as view from the road. An intimidating and improbable roof problem on great holds with stonking gear. Do it!

Follow the right tending break to the ledge. Launch out through a pumpy horizontal puzzle to glory jugs up the face.

This route is on the wall that forms the gulley on the first buttress to the right of the King Cobra Prow.

Start up the break on the left of the wall and at the ledge pull onto the second half of the wall just to the left of the corner of the roof.

This route is on the wall that forms the gulley on the first buttress to the right of the King Cobra Prow. Start up the middle break with a tricky start. At the ledge step right to use a lower section of the roof to pull through and then step left and straight up the face to the top. Start will be harder for shorter folks.

FA: R. Halsey & T. Versfled, Mar 2018

This route is on the small face in front of the second buttress to the right of King Cobra Prow.

Head up the face to an overlap. Pull right to layback and up to the narrow roof. Crank through using the finger crack and easily to the ledge. Walk off right.
