Begins on a good layback and finishes with some great handjamming or laybacking depending on your climbing style.


The route follows the obvious crack running up the South facing corner.


Top rope easily with 2 bolts a few feet back from the top lip.


This was called sidewinder a few years back.
I believe the grade was a little lower. Apr 3, 2010
This is Solo Crack (5.7) not Sidewinder (5.9). Sidewinder is not a crack. Apr 15, 2014
