Jumping Someone Else's Train

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.
