A pleasant alternative that climbs the formation with surprising ease. Take the slab cracks on the right of the Swishbar face to a steepening at the patina arete. Gain and climb a crack to the top ledge and traverse this down and left to finish up a short crack (right of the corner crack). It is also possible to traverse left at a lower ledge (at the steepening) and climb good flakes more directly to the finishing crack.


Swishbar face, left-hand Feudal Wall.


Standard rack (camalot 4 useful for the top belay).
