Chopper. The Chopper is a single-pitch climb first climbed by Rick Sylvester and me in September. It is located in the second crack system left of the Edge of Night, so named for the prominent blade-like block found a third of the way up. It was first attempted by Del Young and me in 1968, and there were several attempts in the following years. The crux move involves a hanging fist jam with the body in a horizontal position. The pin list consists of 1?", 1-1", 1-1½", 1-2", 1-2½" 2-3". Two bolts are in place for the rappel to the ground. NCCS I, F11.
