Description 

Very Good route that is consistent movement at the grade and well worth the visit. The only crux would be the funky start (1st move) and then just the steep jugs all the way to the top, don't flame out to soon!

Location 

This is the first route just right of the dirty chimney splitting the cliffs. Steep route up jugs and large pockets. Rappel off and enjoy the FUN!

Protection 

Well protected sport route with 5 Bolts to fixed anchors up top for rappel.

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.
