As of July, 2018 The Swarm is a 2 pitch route, 5.9 and 5.10a.  The first pitch climbs the open slab 30 meters to the left of Chicken Wing. Begin left of the first bolt on good edges.   Continue past 8 more bolts until reaching the large ledge above and a 2 bolt anchor.  To do the second pitch, scramble up a bit of 4th class terrain and belay right below 2 low bolts in a corner.  Climb the corner and eventually work your way out left onto a face.  Pass more bolts on the face.  At this point you will be very close to the neighboring route, Bum Cakes, and you can link over to this line and go to the Bum Cakes anchor.  Otherwise, continue up on good holds.   Pass a series of cracks and slots placing a couple pieces of gear at good stances.  Turn a slight lip and passing out of sight of your belayer continue up an open slab passing more bolts.  After clipping the last bolt make a dash for the anchor or claw around for some more gear placements.  A nice ledge and large trees are the current anchor set up.  From this anchor two 60 meter ropes are the safest option to get down but you may just make it with a 70m.  From this ledge it possible to continue up on several established pitches such as Proud and Free or Where the Sidewalk Ends.


This is the next route left of Chicken Wing Slab and to the right of My Lucky Bun Day
