It’s not a great shot but you can see a snake on the crag in the bottom right of the photo. I’ve heard stories of snakes on ledges but seeing is believing. As we were climbing a snake made it’s way down the slab before going into a finger pocket. It spent some time with it’s head sticking out before reemerging. A local determined it was dangerous – I couldn’t get the name in English but apparently something bad happens after “5 to 7 minutes” if you’re bitten. It was picked up with a stick and moved off the crag. But it came back and seemed undeterred by people. After it failed to take the hint the locals passed sentence – death. They knew what it was and said it had to go. The executioner swung with a stick but missed the mark and this time the snake took the hint – it bolted out of the area safe and sound.
