Swan Slab is a very popular area with zero approach and an abundance of short, moderate routes. It is south-facing and gets sun almost all day long. Most of the routes are easily top-roped, making it extremely popular for guided groups. Count on crowds.
Park either at Yosemite Lodge (across the street), Camp 4, or Lower Yosemite Falls. All the routes are about 100 feet north of the road.

A great addition to the Oak Tree Flake or Grant's Crack. Climb the stacked blocks off the ledge at the top of the for mentioned climbs. Pass the bay tree, and proceed into the finger crack.
