une, 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.<br><br />
