Description 

P2 of Green Snake (Louck guide) is a thin slab climb that "snakes" up a small dihedral/roof to finish at the farthest left rap station reachable from Gem Stone (see photo). Nice thin slab moves to a small overlap crux.

Have looked at this line on and off over the years, and finally got to TR it this weekend. While this is a great slab route - it would be a very dangerous lead - looking at no protection at the crux, with a 20, 30 foot fall on a 1 or 2 marginal #1 nut placements. Whoever put this up had some serious huevos. While I would not suggest it for a lead, this is a great TR after climbing Gemstone.

Location 

Left of Seemingly Hard.

P2 can be top roped from upper Gem stone raps

Protection 

medium cams down low, very thing protection (Lowe nuts) in the upper section. Serious R potential!
