Great climbing and a good warmup if you stop at the first set of anchors about 10+. The 35ft. extension is really great and well worth doing.


Start on Riders On The Swarm but stay left.

This route is Tough Enough and was established by Scott Ayers. Hitting the first chains is 10+ and 13 bolts. Climbing the extension is 11+ and 18 bolts. The first four bolts are shared with Riders On The Swarm. Be sure to stay left rather than clipping the midpoint anchors on Riders On The Swarm. Incredible route!

a very condensed crux... i always prefer to go right to the end of the riders on the swarm because of its better distribution of hard moves.
