Leah Sandvoss on the first pitch (5.10) of Swingin...

The DM starts off with a 75' first pitch of 5.10- climbing that gets you to below the roof. After you are all set, launch out into the steep crack and get your swing on! Now that I think about it, not sure if it has seen a ground to top anchor redpoint? Something to look into if you have the time...
Two routes left of the little tower.
Double set. Chain anchors
James getting started up the obvious steep crack!

first pitch is pretty sandbag for 10- Actually more like 11- but good! I used a full set of dbls to #2 camalot plus 1 #3. Scoped out the upper pitch for next time: looks like dbl #4 and a #5 would be useful. I'll be back!!
