DescriptionBegin on Sidewinder and where that route cuts left continue up over a small roof and past three bolts on featured rock to gain the prominent dike. Traverse left, clip a final bolt, (shared with Sidewinder and make the long tenuous traverse up and left to the top.
The descent is to the climber's left, where a bit of down-climbing, or a leap, will access a pinnacle with rap anchors.
- Although essentially a variation to Sidewinder this route is equally as good and a recommended alternative if you've already done that route.
