This family of at least four copperheads lives on a climb in a crack at one of the most popular trad areas here in the Red River Gorge, The Fortress Wall. Take a close look and remember what they look like. If you grabbed ahold of this while you were climbing, the hour you need to get help, is going to be about all you have.
The babies are the ones to fear.
Never mess with a Copperhead!! I have friends that have been bitten and they say it is the worst pain there is.
