This face route follows a few bolts right of the route Invisible Touch, skirting just left of the southwest corner of the big chimney.


On the separate pinnacle on the leftmost side of the Sidewinder Face.

I actually thought this was fairly fun. Really delicate arete moves, especially near the top. A worth while TR for sure. If you stay on the arete the entire way and traverse at the very end (at the horizontal) it is 11b.
