Spring Swing (5.8) trad

Description 

Kind of a silly variation if you ask me... so don't ask me... and then again who the heck am I and why would my opinion matter!

Same start as 8)Spring Fling. When you get to the first ledge traverse cliff left with your feet on a good horizontal ledge towards Beer Wolf. Trend upwards until you get to the roof and traverse back to towards Spring Fling. This is the crux of this route, stemming across the chimney and establishing yourself back onto Spring Fling. Great section of climbing!

The climbing on this route was actually really fun. The rock quality was NOT! The gear was mostly good (when available) but again the rock quality was not inspiring. My second said he could tell when I was nervous because I would sew it up before the next section.

The most exciting section was traverseing from underneath the choss roof to the last section of Spring Fling.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of climbing. Might be a great one to consider doing on Top Rope.

Be careful on lead! Choss.
