The rig that conquers the center of the Swamp Cave cleaned up really nice, and offers a cool variety of holds and movement. Begin with a few bolts of easier climbing, then plant a right knee-bar for the routes main rest at about 1/3 height. Fire into a very continuous power endurance boulder problem that ends with the route's crux. Finish on the easier upper headwall.

4 stars for movement, 1.5 stars for rock quality (mostly in the easier sections though). However, definitely worth doing!!


The only route out the super steep center of the Swamp Cave.
