BETA PHOTO: South Faces of Cottontail and Echo towers. Sidewin...
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.
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.
10 - #1
15 - #2
20 - #3
1 set small cams (Aliens, TCUs, Master Cams...whatever you got)
3 sets Camalots .5 - #5
1 #6 Camalot
Plus all the other junk you will need.
There was a BUNCH of back cleaning big cams on this route. Be prepared to grovel. :-)
This route might seem a bit harder than the given grade. Please call Paul GAGner to complain. Thank you for your time. Jeremy Aslaksen
