Johnny G on Swamp Thing.
This is the cave that is located near the back of the canyon. It is very shady as the canyon is narrow. Very rare to find others climbing here.
Follow the canyon back to where are large cave opens up to the left. Since I have never walked in from where the parking area is now, I would guess it will take you 25 - 30 minutes to get there.

This is the second most leftward route on the wall. There is a variation that goes straight up, but you will want to follow the right leaning series of features. A good mix of pockets, pinches and jugs this steep line is one of the best 11 sport routes I have done....[more] Browse More Classics in NV

Today I added mussy hooks to the anchors (which are metolious rap hangars) on the three 9+/10A's on the right side of the swamp cave wall. I also added them to the far left route (12a) on the bit of wall left of the swamp cave.
I love this crag...and it will be nice to be able to lower off the warm-ups!
