SWAMP THAAANG

2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Stick clip the first bolt and execute a memorable boulder problem to a dirty ledge (.11c/d). Climb fun cracks to a roof and obvious flare. Enter the flare with difficulty on shallow finger locks (.11+, bolted). Rad knob and arete moves exit the flare, easier ground to the right of an incipient crack leads to a chained anchor.

Fat fingers will find the second crux quite a bit harder I'd imagine, but both harder sections are short lived and can be aided.

Location 

Start on top of a flat mossy boulder.

Protection 

3 bolts and wires and small cams with a .5 and #2 C4 to supplement on the easy stuff. Offsets work best.
