Description Suggest change

This set of huge boulders doesn't seem to have seen much climbing yet but there is a good amount of pretty good rock here and it is really close to everything else in Boulder Natural. It gets its name from the swamp that you have to pass through on the approach but the landings (for the most part) are dry and flat.

If anyone knows anything about this area and what's been done please post it.

Getting There Suggest change

These boulders are located a couple hundred feet past the Yosemite boulders. The easiest way to find them is by following the Devil's Den trail and looking to your left. After you pass the Yosemite boulders just wait until you see the huge boulder that is really three boulders leaning on each other. You can't miss it.
