This is THE line at the Swamp Wall. No one has seriously tried it and it needs doing!!! Likely 12+ or 13-.
45 degrees overhanging with sparse holds getting off the ground. Crux is first few moves, then bigger holds and granite fins emerge at the end of the steeps. Redpoint crux awaits at the angle change to top out the bulge.

Originally called Swamp Monster, this line now looks to be doable. What was once before thought super hard to impossible (no one really knows why that was thought), the opening crux is probably hard 5.12. I did all of the moves recently (Oct 2016) up to the lip, but after that it was soaking wet and sloppy. I don't recall anything there looking too difficult, when Kurt Hager and I bolted the top portion a few years back. Another rig that will surely see an FA next season!
