Weekend Whipper: When One Piece Saves the Day

13-Feb-2014


Kunza Korner (5.10c) is considered one of the best trad-climbs in Smith Rock, Oregon. This 85-foot corner-crack slowly gets harder the higher you climb, and the gear gets smaller and smaller. 'You can sew the crux up with small stoppers but they are small so place a few,' warns the route's description on Mountain Project. In this Weekend Whipper, you get to see why placing a 'few' stoppers is a REALLY good idea.
