Description 

This thin, desperate variation to the upper half of Sidewinder is quite a ride. Even with the bolts, there is the potential for long falls from the cruxes.

P1: Climb the first pitch of Sidewinder to the belay ledge/bolts.

P2: Head up the second pitch of Sidewinder but step right after the first easy roof and clip a bolt on the face. Continue up thin climbing and make an extremely difficult traverse right after clipping the second bolt. Follow shallow corners/seams up past a third bolt to the top. Spectacular and hard!


Protection 

Standard rack plus TCU's and RP's.
