The West-facing wall of the Alligator Lounge has a distinct panel of supreme gator skin. Lator Gator climbs the right side of the wall following a crack system that wanders up the featured face. The protection gets trickier the higher you go, but fortunately the moves get easier, too.


Back side of the Alligator Lounge, known as "The Swamp". When approaching the east side of the Lounge across the boulders, scramble up & left (west) instead of dropping down to the forest floor.


Standard rack, chains at the top.
