This part of Swan Slab is very popular with beginning climbers and is usually overrun with the participants in climbing schools. This route provides the easiest access to the anchors for toproping Grant's Crack and Oak Tree Flake.

The Location needs a slight correction to be "just left of Oak Tree Flake," and not "hanging Flake."
