Up Swift Creek Extension

Post by jmwoodhouse86 » Tue Nov 25, 2008 1:26 pm

Anyone ever paid attention to the sweet looking crack system that extends above the fixed gear anchors at the top of Up Swift Creek Without a Paddle at Funk Rock? Anyone even climbed that route?? I got on it once, and was surprised at how decent it was, considering that it is relatively unknown. I didn't have time to, but I've been wanting to go back and extend the line all the way to the top; it looks like it gets a little harder, but it looks like it'd be amazing, maybe in the hard 10 range? Anyone ever done this? Anyone know what I'm talking about??

Been on Swift Creek, but don't remember anything about above the anchors.

It was lead all the way to the top a long time ago by Bruisebrother Tima' Andriakos. It was, considered solid 10, I believe.

Once again, that route has been taken to the top. I seconded with Randy Childers leading and a mess of witneses like Kieth Priestly and Brad Shirk who also went to the top. It was around 98/99 when we did it and the second pitch did seem 10ish if i remember correctly.
