The sword, a 30' x 3' x 1' thick flake, is tightly in contact at the bottom, and wedged at the top on the left, however, and does not seem to be actually a matter of impending doom upon closer inspection, as opposed to suspended by a single horse's hair....
Yet with the fun of climbing, one is reminded of the ever present peril of Damocles.
Head back South from the top of Rope To Ruin, presuming you have climbed that pitch to arrive here. Go just below a few small trees and up into a corner directly below the hanging corner. Alternate cams and sidepulls in the right and left side of the flake to its top, wondering at times if the giant spike you are on will fall in our geologic era, or far later.
As you get to the top, you will see that it is actually pretty solid.
At the top of the corner, traverse a few meters left to a large tree with rap slings. Up and to the climber's left, one can see the finish of Handcracker Direct. Up and to the right, one can see the top pitch of the Rhombohedral.
Rap here, or finish on one of those, or their alternates.
