The occasional copperhead at Carderock.  This one likes to sun her or himself in a little nook near the top of beginner's face.   a climber on the upper crux of the 'flake' route on Jan's Face.  Photo: Christiane Hupe.   Working on the finish of Silver Spot. The key to the finish is high stepping the chocked foothold to the right of the climber's knee looking down.  Hanging out and watching Silver Spot get worked...  Chris Hupe from Haelle in eastern Germany does Silver Spot on her third try.
