Climbing Area Index / Dickey Mountain / Learn To Swim (5.11b)
Directions:  This is the left most route in the Ocean area. It begins at a stance beneath a small roof/overlap at a bolt.
Description: Learning To Swim is unique in that it actually has a few stances between the cruxes!
    Pitch 1: It is best to clip the first bolt with a locker and then unclip from it when clipped into the second bolt. Make a hard move at the 1st bolt past another to a horizontal crack (med/lg cam). Continue past 5 more bolts to a two bolt lower off. 75ft, 5.11b
