"Who wouldn’t want to climb something called the Cobra?
I first saw it on the approach to Ancient Art in Fisher Towers, Utah (it’s that crazy spire you might have seen in a credit card commercial).
On the way back down the trail, I had the opportunity to give the Cobra a go. Sure, it’s a conglomerate of pebbles and soft rocks that feels similar to mud, with a neck that looks treacherously thin. I figured it had probably been there for a long time, so the odds of it landsliding were pretty slim. Turns out, I was wrong, because it crumbled several months later, but not on my watch.
I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to conquer the Cobra before its unfortunate fall."
