Swavik lowering off jump.
Begin this steep power route by jumping off the polished launch pad about 5 feet up the slab. You will experience the mental crux of the route before your feet have even left the ground! Grab onto a sharp left hand jug and a smaller but still good right hand. From here, follow a number of strenuous gaston and cross-through moves to an okay rest and your 4th clip. The route now eases off on angle but continues in difficulty. Punch it to a sloper and delicately move around the corner on poor feet to sloper jugs and the chains.
Originally called 'Jumping Someone Else's Train', two options are available for the vertically challenged: Stick clip and pull up to the start holds ('Chump') and a boulder start through the smoke scaring in the back of the cave which ups the grade to 13c ('Judontwanttogothere' FA: Andy Raether, '07).
Hard to find sequences and power endurance movement characterize this fun climb. Climbs much better than it looks.
This is kjust left of the routes 'Railing
' and 'Terminal' in the back of the cave.
Quickdraws are hanging on this beast.
