|Like the Gouda route, this is overclimbed and thus slimy and chalked to hell such that it feels like some of The Pit climbs.|

|Pure, good fun! Similar climbing as Gouda, only a little shorter. Also a good route to do to get out of the sun/wind.|

The start is a crux section depending on how tall you are. I'm 6'4" so the reach wasn't much of an issue. I felt the crux was up toward the 5-6th bolt where you have to traverse right a little bit and snag a very short vertical crack that lets you hit the higher ledge.
Not really a classic in my mind, but the Swiss wall is always super shady, so it's a great option when it's hot out.
