Beautiful line with consistently sustained climbing. Follow a right angling crack in a right facing corner. Starts predominantly with fingers and then finishes with a burly bulge.


Look for two corners that form an A frame. Copperhead #5 follows the left corner. Gear anchor at the top. Descend from fixed anchors on Garden Ledge with one rope.


Standard trad rack. Also bring a large red Camalot or equivalent.

By red camalot, do you mean the older-style #4.5? Jan 27, 2008

If I remember correctly it was a tree belay at the top, then walk over to the chains on the Garden Ledge. Mar 12, 2008

Also, I don't believe the fixed pin shown in the guidebook is there anymore. Mar 13, 2008

You will be a lot happier at the top if you save a big cam or two for the finish. Jan 13, 2010
BTW - to get picky, the complete route name is Copperhead #5.
Copperheads came in sizes. Not sure I ever saw a #5. Dec 20, 2012
