|Rock Garden Valley - Right Side
Swiss Cheese ascends the left side of a steep and extremely knobby face about halfway up the right side of the canyon (~100' down-canyon from Double Dogleg). Scramble up easy rock to a ledge and then climb cracks to access the juggy face above. Follow the largest and most obvious jugs up to a single rusty bolt (1/4") and continue straight up (5.8) or cut left via easier terrain (5.6).
pro to 4", one bolt (1/4"); large cams (#3-4) on top for the anchor.

The shiny new bolts just right of Swiss Cheese belong to a route called The Treat (5.7+)

This is a laughably juggy climb that's fun for speed ascents on toprope. Also good for warming up for the routes further up the valley. 5.5/6 for the left exit, 5.8- straight up seems accurate.

Missing the clip could be a disaster, so be cool and make that clip. Agreed that TR would be a good time with little to contemplate.

Climbed The Treat today... The single bolt on Swiss Cheese looked quite rusted and sketch to me.
