Description

To date Cobra Crack is one of the hardest crack routes in the world. Overhanging fingers on perfect granite. If you can climb the grade and enjoy cracks then the Cobra is or at least should be on your ticklist. One of the best rock climbs in the world without question. Sack up and fight the pain and the glory is yours!

Location

On the Cirque of the Uncrackables. The route that makes your jaw drop!

Protection

Thin! Green through Grey Alien size. Bring one .5 piece.

So Peter Croft doesn't have the FA but is listed in here as having it? Does he? Or doesn't he? Who actually has it? Just curious. Aug 21, 2016
