Big Swing Face has been overlooked by many climbers at High Cliff. But it is become much more popular these days. The reason why it attracts most climbers is because it has a quality that most areas at High Cliff lack-- Overhangness (It's not a word, but you know what I mean). This is a great spot to burn out at the end of the day. The majority of the climbs are complete Jug-hauls.
Getting to Big Swing Face is very simple. Follow the directions to get to The West Side. Once you get to the barrier boulders go left. Walk a little ways on the trail until you come to an intersection. To your left will be the Indian Effigy Mounds. To the right will be the access to the climb. Keep heading South down this access. This will bring you right to the base of the climb.
