DescriptionAn ok roof bypass that unfortunately involves a pitch and a half of uninteresting climbing to get there. A variation exists passing the roof on the left (5.9-ish) but it doesn't look as fun as going under on the right side.
P1: (5.6?) Follow the first half of the first pitch on the Swift (if doing it in two pitches), then veer left and work up some easy 5.0 with a few small sections of more moderate climbing, depending on the path you take. Youre aiming for the roof at the top. Setup belay just about anywhere.
P2: (5.10a) Follow any of several paths up towards the prominent roof, though the crack leading straight underneath it is probably best. Theres a right-slanting hand-sized crack under the roof that allows passage to the right and over. The crack is a bit gritty still, but with some traffic it could turn into a fun route. Plenty of opportunity to setup belay on the slabs above.
Longish scramble off to climbers right.
