Description

This climb is on the west side of Swim Fin, facing the Mean Mistreater wall. Obvious bolt line up the tower with a small roof about half way up.

Protection

Good bolting. It is a bit far to the first bolt, but if you are nervous, you can get an RP in along the way.

This, along with multitudes of other climbs have been altered in one way or another since I started climbing here in '95. I agree, climb it the way you like, skip bolts, etc. I can't be the only one who has burnt out and was super happy that I found a bolt instead of having to fumble though my rack? It gets downright SCARY at times! Oct 20, 2016

fun route , and great views! Oct 23, 2009
If you don't like them don't clip them. You can make a career out of skipping bolts, it is fun, I do it regularly. It helps me prepare for the days I will have to run it out a ways. I put in lots of bolts I don't need as I could easily solo many of the routes I put up. It certainly would be cheaper. Sometimes I space the bolts out to make the lead more exciting, and sometimes I add a bolt so someone at their limit of ability can dog the crux into submission as I have sometimes done. Sometimes I put bolts next to perfectly good gear placements because I don't want to carry a rack to place one or two pieces. Put up new routes in the style you prefer and let your routes do the talking. Either way have fun out there. Jun 11, 2007
There are many, many bolts on Lemmon that are not needed. It is unfortunate. Feb 23, 2007

Interesting that someone went and added a bolt right next to a perfectly good gear placement on this route very recently. It must have seen several hundred ascents before someone just thought, " why would I carry a cam or nut when I could just slam in bolt right here." Nov 2, 2006

Before the first bolt there is a perfect placement for the orange alien or a .75 Camalot. This would be for those who don't like the prospect of the fall onto the slab. Oct 10, 2005

The face to the right of the bolts is about a 5.10a. It can be led using the same bolts clipping from the left side or top roped. Sep 27, 2004
