There is a square shaped slab in the center of the formation with 3 routes on it. Swim or Sink is the left route. It starts sort of in the center and traverses up and left to avoid the steeper section right off the ground. The other two routes here each have 4 bolts (and are the same length), while Swim or Sink only has 3. This gives it considerably more pucker factor, so get your slab head screwed on if you want to lead this. It can also be toproped by climbing Rock Lobster or Surfing first and then making a 4th class traverse over to the anchors.


3 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap.
