Snibble Tower

Looking down from the lead of the 4-star 5.9 pitch on a route that otherwise gets no quality stars (Snibble Tower). This is the “open book” Watts raves about in his guidebook as being one of the best 5.9’s in the Park. The deck is ~400 feet below. The pitch is indeed great and the rock is perfectly solid (after you cross a sea of choss to get there). The pitch is not really visible from belays below or above and so this is the best shot of the crux that I have (July 10, 2005).
