Description:

Climbs the right side of the arete on Serpent's Wall. A new route's on the left side. Good positive holds if you can read the rock. As you approach and pass thru the crux - if your hold is poor, but the placement is good, you're right next to the real hold. As an example, go for the wide shallow pocket just above the prominant two-finger pocket for the right hand below the horn. Rating based on TexasClimbers.com rating

4 out of 5 stars Sidewinder

This is a fun one to add to the warm-up routine or for a new project. Good combination of crimps and jugs. A bit awkward to get off the deck.

3 out of 5 stars *

Tough stuff for a 10c. Big mantle to small pockets.

4 out of 5 stars One of my favorites at this wall

I really enjoyed this route. The key holds can be a bit hidden working through the crux. It's a good onsight to get.

3 out of 5 stars not a bad route

had a little excitement of reading the holds and using them, but really not all that difficult. the holds seemed more obvious to me than the 5.9 to the right of it on it's crux.
