Description 

Bablyon climbs the shallow, left leaning crack to the left of Lakeside Jam. Using sharp crimps and precise feet, work through the V4 boulder problem without any protection and gain the ledge at about the midpoint. Plug some gear and finish up the finger crack on Swift Premium. A sketchy lead for sure.

Location 

This is the left leaning crack between Lakeside Jam and Swift Premium on the left side of the crag. Rap off or walk off.

Protection 

Toprope from trees, or if leading, a few midsize cams (.5,.75,1) should protect the upper crack. No pro down below.
