Kirk Holladay put a toprope anchor on this line over eleven years ago but died before he could return to equip it for the lead. So now that it's set up, jump on it next time you're at the Corner Walls! Start below the large eyebolt, move up and right onto a footledge, then finesse your way up the steep open corner on an interesting variety of holds, passing two more protection bolts. Two distinct finishing sequences leaving bolt 3 allow you to approach the top anchors from either side of the corner. The left variation is a little harder. Equipped in memory of Kirk, who also put up Rock-About, Thrash Cowboy, Good Times Roll, Sweet Action, Twin Oaks, POB and Burning Hand. I know he'd enjoy seeing climbers on SWAG. It's a recommended warmup for the harder routes at the Corner Walls but worthy in itself at the 5.8 grade.
