Poison Swoop is another stunning face climb on a wall with a ton of them. It is only marred by some soft rock and some poisoned holds.

Right off the bat, it is deceptively tricky and involved. A funny hop off the ground gets you to a hollow jug followed immediately by a tricky and somewhat reachy boulder problem to gain the right-angling, sloper rail. Slap and smear your way out this obvious rail feature to a good stance or sit at its end. Build high feet, and traverse back left on the poisoned holds (aka chipped/manufactured) to the crux jump move. A good rest is followed by an unusual boulder problem off a tricky left hand wrap/sloper. Another jump to a massive jug leads to pumpy climbing up the seam to the massive jug underclings and the anchor.

The 3-bolt extension to the anchor on Bean Town Beat Down is an open project. The boulder problem at the anchor of Poison Swoop is very short (1.5 moves) but extremely powerful.


Located left of Bean Town Beat Down, it is easily recognized by the right-angling, sloper rail/ledge/crack thingy.


11 bolts + 2-bolt anchor (this route has two manufactured holds to span an 8 foot section of blank rock).
