Description Suggest change

This is one of the better routes in Squamish, it follows up a two 5.9/10a pitches, then back to back 10d layback pitches with a mix of bolts and gear(small tech very useful). Then a 5.11b slab, very well bolted throughout the crux, then the bolts turn a little homemade and well spaced for the last 30 feet, though significantly easier than the crux. Classic!!!

Location Suggest change

This is the prominent corner to the left of Diedre.
Approach via the trail that cuts uphill into the woods where the bathroom in the Apron lot is. Follow the trail for a minute until it forks and skirts left along the base of the cliff. Follow the trail through the woods for a minute until you reach the cliff again at an eye-catching low angle crack (see P1 of Read Between the Lines) to the left of a low-5th class V-groove. Walk up the V-groove and this will deposit you at the base of Snake. Scramble up and then climber’s left 5-10m of low 5th class to a large ledge where you'll belay for P1. Alternatively, climb the before mentioned “eye catching” crack next to the V-groove to gain this same belay ledge. 

Protection Suggest change

Rack of cams up to 1", double up on small stuff up to a yellow alien.
