BETA PHOTO: White Lightning on left side Swamp King wall

Description 

Start about ten feet from left end of wall. Up some left-leaning cracks, finish at one-foot-wide tree at top of wall.

Variation: Start directly under the big tree (left from bottom of cracks). Climb straight up to rejoin main route.

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2014. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location 

About ten feet from left end of wall. See Area directions for Swamp King.

Protection 

Top-Rope only.
