The Cobra, “From Afar,” Gorge of Despair, 1992. In July, 1992, Guy Keesee and I climbed this two-pitch route on The Cobra’s south face. It starts right of a huge alcove and climbs past three bolts into a crack. There is a bolted belay at the end of the crack. The second pitch goes left and then up another crack (II, 5.11c).
