Just past the juggy start.

Beautiful splitter crack with an extremely fun start. Finger and hand jam up to the bolts from there.


Hike down the Kingfish trail and turn right. It will be the obvious splitter shortly after turning off the descent trail.


Stoppers and cams up to BD #2

Soaks up passive gear. Sewed it up with nuts/hexes.

You may as well switch this route's rating with that of Indian Summer (10c), another great, short splitter farther north on Lake Summersville. Indian Summer feels more like 11a, and King of Swing much more like 10c. Great route, regardless.
