Yet another variation to Sidewinder, this is the hardest of the "snake" routes, and although offering good climbing is seldom done.

Starting a ways right of Sidewinder, climb powerful, bouldery moves over the obvious stepped roof to gain the dike of Sidewinder at it's start. Traverse left to join Sidewinder at it's last bolt and finish up that route.

A worthwhile route to do if competent at the grade, and a logical start to access and fully enjoy the fantastic dike system that characterizes Sidewinder.


5 bolts (3/8"), pro to 3"
