The original ACT Granite description: Slumped on the eastern side of the Corin Valley is an unimpressive pile of yellow/brown granite about to slide down into the creek. Close up, it's rather reminiscent of gritstone and has some classic short routes in the range 18-26 (complete with bolts, very unreminiscent of gritstone). A good alternative to 'Gibraltar Peak' or 'The Fortress' in winter. It is in the sun most of the day.
New description: Snake Rock has become a popular little spot for getting out and about, particularly during winter when you can make the most of full sunshine on the granite. With some additional routes having been put up in sport style in addition to the earlier trad routes, the crag is now suitable for a large range of experience and interests.
Just watch out if you're doing routes on the upper tier - consider slinging a rope to keep you from dropping off the ledge.
The crag is opposite the turn off to 'Gibraltar Peak', visible from the road. Drive about 3.9 kilometres down the Corin Road. Turn left at a yellow road sign (i.e. just before the 'Gibraltar Peak' turnoff. Drive down the dirt to the edge of the native bush and walk south along the pine forest boundary for 200 metres to a cairn, just as the track heads uphill. Walk down left through bush to cross the creek and then head uphill to the crag (about 10 minutes).©
