Start directly below the first bolt and climb up the slab more or less direct. Easy angled but pleasant moves make this a good climb for folks starting to lead.

For many years this was a popular top rope, but it works well as a lead.


Left side of the slab


6 bolts + double ring anchors

Twelve (12) lines in addition to TJ Swan and Myers Crack (including this now bolted line) were led by Todd & Donette Swain using trad gear on August 10, 2004. All 12 lead routes were submitted to Marty Lewis shortly thereafter. He chose not to include any of the climbs in the 4th Edition (2014) of the Mammoth guidebook.
