RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Fun 5.5 pitch route with a bunch of wide as well as some thin beaking/Peckering.

Start at the far right of the South Face below an obvious little spire.

Pretty much the analog crack of Phantom Sprint (North Face).

Fourth pitch shares a couple bolts (one is actually a nail pounded into mud) with Run Amok (Beyer) and 5th pitch shares the final Phantom Sprint (Beyer) bolt ladder.

Final pitch is same as Phantom Sprint.

Rap the route.

Location 

Sidewinder goes up the right skyline of the South Face on Echo. Approach by hiking up the yellow talus slope between Echo/Cottontail and the Oracle.
