Nice jams to start. Paul on Kalahari Sidewinder.

Description 

Starts three routes right of Dihedrus. Climb the shallow corner with cracks that widen near the top. Step left to anchors after 40 feet.

One star for some enjoyable moves, although some climbers may give it two stars due to the limited number of easier routes at Cactus.

Protection 

5 bolts to anchors

I actually give this route 1-2 stars. Not a challenging route at all. It seems that up top the route forces you into the large crack on the right. There appears to be face climbing, but it looked a bit more diffcult than 5.8. A good route to lead to get warmed up for the other moderates out there.

This route had a very trad feel to it. Ended up jamming on a lot of the bottom section. The final moves to the bolt are not difficult but seem a bit smeary for the 5.8 rating it gets.
