Thin fingers lead to bad sized hand/finger 1.5 friends. Small pockets allow stances for gear placements. Catch your breath halfway up and finish tight hands to the anchors 2 friends.
Many .75 camalots or 1.5 friends for the bottom half, then 2 friends for the top. The top seems to be between .75-1 camalots. Round it out with a couple of tcu's for the beginning.
Deaun at a rest stem on Old Bushmills.

This route is 2 cracks right of Lite Not Solid. It is a wide dihedral in beautiful varnished sandstone.

A beautiful, continuous corner - as striking as anything at Indian Creek. Take lots of purple through red Camalot sizes. Hard 5.10 for the leader, as it's really strenuous to stop and place gear... the "small pockets" didn't do much for me!! Not so bad to follow, as you can just motor on through.

Actually Rabid Muslims and Old Bushmills were both climbed by Dave Anderson. He didn't want the Swell to be in guidebooks and he didn't want any recognition...but he was awesome.

a great climb. tricky thin feet at the beginning lead to steep thin hands at the top.
