This is the first boulder you'll see when coming down the trail just at the left of the Army Strong area. It is easily identified by the presence of a big shelf on the left side of the boulder with a small cave below containing a small boulder / big rock on the left side. You'll see chalked holds inside the cave to the right of the big rock.

Getting There 

First hike up on the usual trails to Basilisk wall, then walk WNW horizontally along the base of the low cliffs passng by the Immelman. Strategic Air Command sectors, and the Army Strong sector, and then continue on the small trail down and left to the lower tier. Snake hole is the first boulder you'll see.
