Rock Climbing Photos : Big Wall : All-Time Copperhead Crack, Aurora

All-Time Copperhead Crack, Aurora

All-Time Copperhead Crack, Aurora

This is photo #26 in a series of 32. You can click here to return to Photo #1.

Dr. Piton transmogrifies into Mr. Hyde (AKA Pound the Pitons Pete), attacking the All-Time Copperhead Crack on Aurora with heads, hammer and chisel. Actually, most of the heads were fixed. The flared splitter also took Hybrid Aliens

We were forced up this diversion around the Leavittator crack on Scorched Earth (visible to the left of PTPP) when we lost the Amazing Flying Whale and my mutant rack of monstrous Valley Giant cams.

[Geez, I wish he'd quit talking about that all the time. Sheesh. - Pete]

The notorious Leavittator crack goes from A3/A4 knifeblades to Lost Arrows to tips to fingers to hands to fists to offwidth to off-offwidth to squeeze chimney in one big, unbroken swoosh. It looks like the big brother of the Outer Limits crack on the Cookie Cliff. It goes free at hard 5.11, but I was going to C1 it with the big cams. I even made a special #16, just for that crack.

[Uh, like sorry, eh? - Pete]
