I think this is pitch 3, just below the first large overlap. Lovely pitch!

You might be right! Its been a long time since I last climbed Swastika, 1978 to be exact, with Ken Jackson. It was also the last time that I climbed on the slabs, one of my favourite venues.

The first comment is correct, and the climber is crossing the wee overlap just below the tree. The coffin stone is at the centre of the left edge, with folks dotted around it. Remember the photo is 1966. There was a wee bit more heather then.
