Overview
Steep and short 5.7 hand jams lead to a short traverse to the upper part of Swan Slab gully. If leading or toproping, be sure to set protection before the traverse. To set a toprope, either climb the route or climb Swan Slab Gully. Beware that Swan Slab Gully is so awkward that some climbers may actually find Penelope?s Problem easier despite its harder rating.
