THE SWAMP BOULDER

 

THE SWAMP BOULDER

Beautiful boulder that doesn’t look like much in pictures. I assure you in person this block is ideal for a hot summer day. It sits in the shade and right next to a small creek. Follow American Center Road which lies off Highway 16A heading east out of the town of Custer. Follow this gravel road for about 4 miles this wall will be on your right and very obvious as you can park right next to it.  This wall was first discovered and cleaned by locals Luke Kretchmar and Heath Lille.

THE HOUND V5***

Start the same as for TEPIDUS but move out right after the 2nd hold following good sharp in cuts to the top.
FA: Luke Kretchmar

 

TEPIDUS V6****

Beautiful line that involves different beta for different people. Work up on the crimps throwing out right. Quickly bump your right up to the next incut and make a big throw to a good scrubbed jug hold above. Finish on step but good holds.
FA: Michael Madsen

 

 V3***

Starts on obvious holds and moves up the same line as Problem #4. Then once you throw for the big jug hold. Move out left and mantle.
FA: Luke Kretchmar

 

V3***

Starts on same holds as Problem #3 only once on the good jug up high move up and right finish slightly right. This was the first problem that was established on this block.
FA: Heath Lille and Luke Kretchmar

 

 SWAMP TRAVERSE V6****

 Great Pumpy problem that is full value. If you can make it through the traverse enter into TEPIDUS and really fight the pump to the top.
FA: Luke Kretchmar
