Gear. Can be TR'd from Swashbuckler anchors - this can lead to a big swing when falling and interesting start with tree in the way.

3 out of 5 stars The first route you come to at Sunken. Fun and a little heady.

Did this on toprope from the Swashbuckler anchors. The first move and the last moves are the crux, the rest is fun climbing. Falling equals swinging, watch out for trees. Lack of clean falls earns it the higher safety rating.
