Description

Fun and interesting face climbing that leads past three or four bolts to meet Swept Away at (or a little beyond) its crux. The crux is joining Swept Away and consists of a rather beguiling thin face section. Fall from the end of this section and realize the origins of the name (although I don't think you'll actually hit the ramp at the bottom)!

Location

Approach as for Swept Away, but head up gritty slabs and the big ramp that lies underneath that route. A little heads-up. The route starts below a bulge a little to the left of where the crux is on Swept Away. Further left is My Idea of Fun another route that climbs the dike that ends Swept Away. Sole Fusion is another route (5.12a) that climbs a dike that begins higher up the approach ramp.

Protection

5 bolts including the ones on the top of Swept Away; gear is needed for the corner above the crux on Swept Away. Two bolt chain anchor.

There are three bolts on this route, plus two more if you continue up Swept Away's second pitch. In addition to gear for Swept Away, a small cam (optional) can be placed on this route.

Very good climb, and an excellent variation to start Swept Away. Dec 10, 2009
