DescriptionClimb #18: Swamp Crack (~5.7+, 65) Same start as route Easy Access. Follow low angle crack up and right until it joins a steeper crack system/small gully that goes straight up. Get established in the wide crack and progress upward to the base of block-like shield that has hand-holds on both sides. Work your hands up on the right and/or left sides of the block, then transition back left into
the crack/gully and follow it the rest of the way up to the webbing around a tree. Check condition of webbing and walk off if theyre in poor condition (or replace if possible).
Alternate ~5.9 (on TR): Climb up left of the crack/gully on sharp face crimps towards a bulging face with lichen. Transition back into the gully at the lichen (crux) and finish up the last 10-15 feet the same as Swamp Crack.
