Description

SIDEWINDER 10a ** (150') M(6b)
Takes a zigzagging line up the main SE face (100' right of the Viper's mouth). Begin from the large lower ledge with the large pines, climb the short vertical crack at the far right of the ledge. Step right and continue up the slanting cracks left of "Snake Charmer" until it's possible to traverse left and up to mount the steep headwall on the far left. Traverse right under the 2nd roof, turning it on the far right. Above traverse left again to the final headwall. Belay at a good gear stance (medium cams) with a single bolt backup.

This is a winding route on excellent rock with interesting moves and a lot of variety. A full rack is needed (small to large cams) with lots of long slings to reduce the inevitable rope drag.

Location
