Description 

The mega line of the boulder, start as for swerve but keep swerving. This is the linkup of swerve into shift, and while no moves are particularly hard by themselves the lack of resting positions on unrelenting crimps make this a power endurance testpiece.

While this line is somewhat of a traverse, interesting movements and solid holds make it a worthy problem.

I wasn't sure what to grade this since it's almost a sport climb. It took a good amount of night sessions in a time I felt pretty solid and took considerably more goes than other V11's I sent around that time period. However due to the endurancey style, and hesitation to grade harder so I decided to play it safe with 11. I suck at sport climbing anyways so it's probably not actually that hard.

A lot of pads or not falling until the end or dedicated pad shufflers

I would give this 4 stars but I'm probably biased about it. Thanks to the homies for the support on this one
