I would probably have named this Face to Snake, for I see little reason to head up the face lift for the few extra turns a traverse across this cat track would give you in Cedar Bowl as compared to the easily accessible lower traverse from the top of the Bear Chair. However this route does allow you to more easily get to the very top of Snake Main or the out of bounds Papa's run and that can be worthwhile. You still are likely to have to climb at least a bit, but it is a great help. However even when headed to Snake, I usually find it faster to take the lower traverse and a trail across Snake.
