Description

Great little route that is fun, a touch airy, and well protected, great for a first lead. The crux is probably the very last move stepping onto a small ledge and with no hands standing up to clip the anchor. If it feels off balance, just grab the chains.

Location

Very first route when you reach Headlight; farthest left chains at Headlight Point. Rappel or lower off.

Protection

3 quickdraws, plus chains at the top.

Photos

The route has a couple of alternate starts:
- 6-7' left of the regular start, straight towards first bolt ~5.9
- 8-10' left of the regular start, left of first bolt ~5.10b

Further left, at least 5 different low-to-mid-5.10 variations can be top-roped, with varying degrees of pendulum risk, off the Swerve anchor. Some of these are dirty. They all converge near a small tree ~15' off the ground. Sep 22, 2016
