  • Description 

    Swang of Thangs is super fun and very powerful. Start sitting with your left hand on the sloping ledge and your right hand on the perfect block. Have your left foot in a heel-toe cam way out left with your right foot smeared. Lock off your right arm, and power into the huge sidepull. Release the heel-toe camm and place your left foot just below the heel-toe spot. With your right foot, drop your knee HARD on the same smear, and come right hand into an intermediate crimp at about eye level, then bump right hand to a sloper at the lip of the boulder. Then top it out.

    Location 

    It is in between The Swing of Things Boulder and The Cube Boulder on the trail.
