Nico does the second ascent of the Cobra Crack

Friday june 18, Nicolas Favresse managed the first repeat of the much-tried Cobra crack (placing the gear on lead.). After one brief attempt three years earlier, Nico spent eight days on the route this summer, making 15 attempts in all. The climb is about 30 meter long with its crux part consisting of a 10meter perfect finger crack slicing up the middle of a waving overhanging headwall at the Cirque of the Uncrackables on the Chief’s Backside.
