Sideline, 5.9
3rd Pitch- 75’- 5.9/ Chimney out left through the narrow slot to a finger crack at the opposite end of the chimney. There is a small foot ledge if you are skinny enough to drop down a bit. You can also scramble up and left onto the top of the block that forms the chimney with the wall. Climb the finger crack and follow it as it bends right towards the top and another belay ledge. Fix belay with 1”-3” gear. The holds on this wall, even the varnished ones, are still coming off. Climb with care, keeping balance. This route does not get climbed often if at all. (photo)

Voted 10/10

clean nice crack. 4-pitch 5.9 route at base of solar slab -- sounds & looks like a great option for a half day outing (no crowding I'd guess either?). thanks for postig up Dow - never even heard of this one.

PS weather really looks like shit this weekend at RR? what's your take on the forecast Dow?

Radek, looks to be clearing...got a smattering of snow here yesterday...but Vegas looking up. We are still on for Eagle Dance for Sunday or at least hoping...you coming? Thanks! Sideline and Frieda are both worth doing if you are bored of Beulah and Johnny Vegas. If you have not done Sundog or Sunflower yet on the upper wall, I recommend both to you. We tried to do Arch Enemy and Change up, but flowing water prevented us from tunneling through the arch. We did climb the first pitch of both of those routes trying to find a dry way up and through. Can't wait to get back and give that arch a go when it dries up. Cheers.
