Climb the broken trough between First Offense and Swallow, past a softball sized hole. At the upper headwall stay to the right, continuing up to Swallow anchors.
Five or six cams, tiny to 1-inch. Nuts and/or tricams to supplement. A little runout towards the top.

I did this route free, onsight, back in March 1992 with my partner Mike Power. At the time we intended to do Swallow, but got on this instead. Went back and repeated it a year later.
We called the route "Powerplay."Rating - 5.8R (a little "R" towards the top).
The route takes pretty good gear. You can get in 5 or six decent pieces...tiny to 1 inch cams.
Here was our description - "Climb the broken trough between First Offense and Swallow, past a softball sized hole. At the upper headwall stay to the right, continuing up to Swallow anchors. "

Maybe we can change the name to Powerplay for the right version & leave Hole Lotta Fun on as the left variation.
My guess is that it was top roped long before any of us started climbing here. Any other names out there?

Yeah, we used to TR it when rapping down that side of the wall. I know for certain that Rich Jollisaint TR'd it in about '90. But I'm sure that it was done at least 10 years before him...
