Description 

The first couple moves are on dubious rock, then it is fun and sustained climbing on great rock to an incredible summit.

P1) 5.11a. Follow bolts up the SW corner of the formation, swing right through the crux at the 5th bolt, then follow the crack to the anchors.

To descend, rappel the route then scramble down to the Levitation anchors (behind and climber's right of a big rock that is down and climbers right from the base of Swingtime). Rappel 60 meters to the ground. (See photos.)

Location 

See photos.

Approaches:
1) Climb Levitation or one of the other central slab routes, then scramble up to the base of the route.
2) Climb Spare Rib, and continue past the anchors up to the base of the route.
3) Walk left around the west end of Main Crag. Head up to the base of the wall then angle up and right, following cairns, in a trough. Scramble up behind Totem Tower and across to the base of the route.

Protection 

Seven bolts and two 1"cams.
