Swahili Slang is a bit of an anomaly at The Motherlode, with generally vertical climbing on generally "holdless" stone. This climbs more like a desert face climb, with snaking movement between large features. Some will love the technical, balancy nature of the climbing; others will wonder what happened to all those notorious Red River Gorge jugs. This is a great line for wiley old veterans with good technique, as there are few powerful moves and forearm endurance is irrelevant.
Halfway between "The Warmup Wall" and "The Madness Cave", on the left end of The Motherlode, is a lonely section of wall in the trees. Near the center of this wall is a rounded, right-leaning arete. Swahili Slang climbs up to, along & beyond the arete. Also, this is the next route right of "Take That, Katie Brown"
