Of the four main routes on the right side of the Swamp Cave this is the left most. This classic route starts out with a challenging boulder problem which leads you through a steep section of rock. Once through this section you enter a long stretch of sustained face climbing. AMAZING route!


There are four routes that are on the right hand side of the cliff, this is the left most of those.


Bolts, 10 or so.


So is this the left most or right most route? Feb 29, 2012
Its actually the second left route on the ride side of the cave. Left most is a 13a called Brown Thing. Mar 28, 2014

Great route. Rifle stylee! Left knee pad useful a couple times including the big rest at the end of the crux...for those of us who are mere mortals. Dec 4, 2014
Amazing pitch! The Cave is a great hang and great climbing. Jan 29, 2018
