|Sidewinder Rock - West Face
This route is located up and around the corner from Sidewinder, just right of Skinny Dip.
Climb the initial handcrack as for Skinny Dip, then step out right onto the face. Clip a bolt, followed by 2 more. Make a difficult move right (crux) to gain a crack which takes you to the top.
Rap from a 2-bolt anchor.
3 bolts, TCUs for upper crack

It is the route just left of King Pin. Cool slab moves.

I think something broke between the last bolt and the crack, because there's no way this is .10d. Plus a bolt is missing.

A bolt is indeed missing, but I don't think any holds are missing. The crux is funky and pretty technical with holds that seem to be facing the wrong direction, but there's a sequence that works even for climbers like me at 5'9" and 0 ape index. Fun route, and could be a good lead if that last bolt weren't missing.

There were only 3 bolts placed on the first ascent. The fourth bolt (now missing) was placed by someone after the first ascent and subsequently removed (not by me). As I recall, it was one of those weird, self -drilling sleeves with the threads inside for the bolt to be screwed into.
If someone wants to replace/add this fourth bolt it's OK with me.
