Sword In The Stone is a cool new sport route on the First Tier of Avalon. It climbs the face and knife-edge arete left of Mists of Avalon.

Start 25' left of Mists of Avalon, below some broken slabs with loose rock. Scramble up the slabs to a ledge below a small overhang. Climb up and left past three bolts (cracked horizontal hold in here) and several small overhangs to a stance at the base of the arete. Work up the knife-edge arete (crux) past three more bolts to a bulge. Clip a final bolt and cruise to the anchor.

7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. All bolts were drilled by hand by "Bosch-less Bruce".
