■Patagonia Video: Sonnie Trotter Climbs First Free Ascent...

June, 2006, Squamish, B.C. Patagonia climbing ambassador Sonnie Trotter climbed the first free ascent of Cobra Crack (5.14). Sonnie worked the overhanging, thin-finger crack 30--40 times over the past few years, often rope-soloing the route to dial the moves, before completing it all-free. Sonnie said, "It's very rare to find a climb that is both overhanging, and so aesthetic. The fingers fit inside, but barely -- if the crack was any more shallow, it would be just another impossible wall, if the crack was much steeper, it may be impossible -- so I consider that route a gift for climbers. I've spent the better half of 10 years looking for a climb like that. It's perfect." Credits: Paul...

This is a short clip about a local kick ass climber from the DNV who's attempting to be the fifth person to climb the one and only Cobra. On his first try of the day, after many weeks of attempts, Will made it higher than ever before, falling off only one or two moves below the final jug. On his second try of the day however, things didn't go as well.....oh and sorry about the cell phone in the background, we're still trying to figure out who that was.....
