Description 

Sidewinder takes the face on the third buttress left of Wendell Spire.

Fire up to some alligator skin edges via a tricky undercling and side step. I know that Tom will howl at the thought, however, stepping off right is definitely off route! Stay on the face for 5.11c. Fingery and reachy.


Protection 

Draws and a rope.

I would probably rate this 11a/b w/out a stem. The crux moves can be done dynamically, and after that it's just a little pumpy.
