Schwing! is the four-bolt direct start to Crucial Taunt
Start directly below the anchors for Crucial Taunt
and climb up a small pillar to a nice stance on top of the pillar. Get psyched for the fun boulder problem crux above. Crank up past a superb pocket to difficult moves to a sloper on the right. Keep it going for a few more tricky and difficult moves to the fourth bolt and then easier climbing on the steep finish of Crucial Taunt
. The crux boulder problem favors taller climbers and is more difficult for shorter climbers, thus the split grade.
There are two bolts out left after the fourth bolt that allow one to finish on Lightbulb Not Included

Almost smack in the middle of the alcove heading up the smooth, clean rock.
Still cruxing on Schwing! but almost to easier gro...

Despite a number of attempts, and a few by me, I haven't seen anyone pull off the bypass to the right on lead without first hanging on the bolt at the crux. It's really hard to climb into it naturally. But if it goes, that's cool in that it keeps the difficultly a bit more in line with the climbing below and above the crux.
That said, the bouldery crux is super fun!
