Snot Rocket
« on: February 14, 2004, 12:07:02 PM »
Great day in Crawford with only one other pair of climber's and a soloist hiking along the tracks.  Big group in The Flume across the way though.  We picked Snot Rocket as a good goal after Al's coverage of the route.  Arriving around 9am the only two other climbers we saw in the area were on it.  We delayed ourselves by climbing the Trestle Gully (3) and TR'd a steeper pillar to the left (good fun).  After that the route was open and Alex took the first pitch, I took the second.  Very nice route, well protected, and interesting moves.  I felt the first pitch was 4+, and the last pitch maybe 3+/4-.  The last pitch is much better than it looks from the tracks, and the route was probably easier due to the traffic it has seen.  Great hooking.
