BETA PHOTO: T. Polk top roping Copperhead.
This route ascends a face, to a short veritcal crack and then a low angle flake to a ledge.
The name is apt. Many people have reported seeing the namesake of this route on the belay ledge. If you climb in warmer months be wary.
The route begins on the NE corner of Jewel Pinnacle and follows the crack. This can be top roped by scrambling up to the ledge to the left or on the descent from Diamond in the Crack.
Mostly medium sized cams. But take a few other pieces as well. There is a tree on the ledge. You can rappel from the tree or walk off left.
