Hi,

I keep hearing about the problem "King Cobra V7ish". I am taking a trip out to Hueco this Christmas and I would like to work on it. Just wondering where it is, since it's not in the guide.

thanks,

tim

No,

I'm quite sure this King Cobra is at Hueco.

yeah, I KNOW about the one in the Valley.

Man, I knew I'd be getting only "yosemite" responses to this one, lol.

If anyone knows about the Hueco problem, PLEASE IM me.

thanks,

tim

The Hueco King Cobra is at the end of the hallway that leads from near the top of the chains (go right as opposed to left as if you were going towards the chain wall) to the the New Meadow on North Mountain.
I didn't get on it [insert excuse here] but it does look good.

Thanks so much for the info and for the helpful climber who IM'd me. For any others interested in this problem and "Speed Bump V7", they are both in the "New Meadow" guide in the latest Rock and Ice "ultimate climbs" issue. Both problems come highly recommended.
