A classic and no pushover. Start at the front of the pillar.1) 4b, 13m. Climb up past a pocket and then head up a slight groove to the midway ledge and belay.2) 4c, 14m. The clean corner-crack leads to a capping overhang, from where a short but strenuous hand-traverse right gains the finishing corner of Swallow's Nest. Finish up the corner. © Rockfax
