Description 

This is the face right next to Swing On In. It starts directly below to the right of the top out of Swing On In, can be done with the same top-rope set up. It is nice 5.10 face climbing to a slanting ledge to rest on before the crux. The crux was created by a jug knob being ripped of on its first assent making it significantly harder. Where the knob got ripped off their is now an small under-cling/pinch. You must both power in and out of this hold. Without the jug to stand on the foot work gets tough higher up, and this all leads to a fun sustained crux. The top out is again nice 5.10 face climbing.

Location 

On the same rock formation as Swing On In. Hike Down and up. It is the obvious face climb and its a straight shot.

Protection 

Toprope. Please do not bolt in Mongolia. At least until climbing really takes off with the locals.
