Swiss Cheese was the first bolted line one encountered upon entering the canyon proper (before all of the new bolting). Generally speaking there is a pile of cheater stones at the bottom of the route to assist in the direct variation. The stones are there to overcome the overhang, and avoid tumbling into the hollow/cave below. These cheater stones may be considered a sage tactic by some, and in my humble opinion are more sketchy than pulling the move outright. The actual route starts in the corner (getting up the corner and over to the first bolt is the crux) to the right and traverses into the route. The route proper is slightly off angle and follows a line of great patina holds, that seem to define the phrase "great patina holds" - up the beautiful sandstone wall. This is a great route, especially for someone learning to lead.
