Matt Segal Does 4th Ascent of Cobra Crack

Matt Segal has made the 4th ascent of one of the hardest traditionally protected crack climbs in the world, Cobra Crack (5.14) in Squamish, BC.  It was first climbed by Sonnie Trotter a few years back with  Nicolas Favresse and Ethan Pringle making quick repeats earlier this summer.  Click here to see video of Trotter working the line.  So who’s next on Beth Rodden’s Meltdown??

    Did that french guy in First Ascent never make it back to get this thing?

    Obviously not – if you are not listing him – but in the spirit of leaving a comment…

    I don’t believe Didier Berthod has come back for the send. I think he is Swiss but I could be way off base.
