The Swamp Slabs is the leftmost section of Granite Mountain, from the Swamp Slabs Route over to Tread Gently. Most of the Swamp Slabs routes can be reached from Pine Tree Ledge, a prominent shelf cutting across the bottom of the Swamp Slabs area. The routes here are mostly easy to moderate, on good rock and offer good pro and very nice climbing.
The Swamp Slabs are access from the main climber's trail in a sort of open, flat area with an agave plant or two. The Swamp Slabs trail heads up the left from here, then grunts up below the wall to reach Pine Tree Ledge.
