Maybe you mean "the Swift"??  Over on Lost Horse wall.  The Swallow is at Taquitz.

Here is the JT route:  https://www.mountainproject.com/route/105722167/the-swift

I personally didn’t like the swift that much. Though maybe it was because we only did it in two pitches, or because I got lost being distracted by an enticing roof. Either way, dappled mare is much more fun, and still pretty easy.

I did both the Swift and Dappled Mare easily in one outing. The walk down is pretty short and easy. Both routes were nice.

The swift has been the scene of more than a few epics, you can get suckered off route on to what looks like easier ground and then.....get in trouble.  

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
