Description 

A hard stand up move at the 2nd bolt starts off the tricky opening section. Crimpy moves and reaches make this a sustained climb. All the moves seem easier than the nearby Culture Shock but it may be a more challenging experience overall. Fun climbing throughout.

The extension, called Swank Nostalgia (5.12a), follows 10 more bolts over multiple bulges and checks in at 12a.

Location 

This is at the far left side of the large roof and just left of Hanging by a Thread.

Protection 

11 bolts to open shuts.

CONDITION REPORT 
Swank Nostalgia and the upper sections of Quarryman and Burning Desire past the first anchors are currently closed due to hawks nesting next to the routes. Climbers are advised to avoid these routes until the young hawks have fledged (left the nest), probably around mid-June. Use caution on Nostalgia, The Ultimate, Hanging by a Thread, and the lower sections of Quarryman and Burning Desire, and please be sensitive to any disturbances to the nest.

Similarly high in quality to Violator. Slightly more sustained as you near the anchor, IMO.
