Description 

The ultimate "power endurance" route, that would make a perfect 4x4: V4, V3, V5, V7 (or something like that...) Currently the hardest route at the Darkside, this testpiece pushes a line up the tallest part of the cave with sustained bouldering that increases in difficulty up to a poor shake before the final crux boulder problem. An ascent demands a mix of bouldering power on the small pockets, technical finesse on the poor footholds and stamina to link it all together with few rests, all on perfect stone in a magnificent cave.

Location 

The second route from the Right at the Dark Side. Shares the start with "Straight Outta Campton" by starting on a stack of cheater stones, then head right to the first bolt and up.

Ten year old Ashima Shiraishi redpointed Swingline during the late summer of 2011, which I find incredible.
