Churning in the Swiss Cheese.

Add Photo Add Comment    Printer View


The Swiss cheese of course! This unmitigated classic is easily one of the best 5.10s at Shelf Road. With flawless stone, sinker pockets, and enjoyable movement, this line makes the perfect choice for climbers of all abilities.

Begin up the sea of pockets, which get slightly large with height, leading to a fun section of big reaches between jugs. At the horizontal break, the rock becomes less featured as the line trends right, offering an interesting crux on large features. The big holds return for the final run to the anchor.


The Swiss Cheese Wall is a wall of amazing pockets near the far left end of the North End, perched upon a deep ledge. This is the furthest left route on the wall, immediately L of "Under the Milky Way".


~8 bolts to 2BA. There's a bit of a runout above the last bolt.
