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.

Dislocation Direct 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b AZ : Central Arizona : ... : Swamp Slabs
Start on Pine Tree ledge about 30' left of the start to the Dislocation standard route. Climb obvious crack systems straight up to a ledge (optional belay) and follow more nice cracks up and left (where the standard route traverses right) to a belay nearly 60m ropelength up. From here climb a corner to a ledge, a short face section, and another corner to the top. An excellent and mellow adventure....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
