catching the last hard move of Swordfish


Start as for Golfish Trombone, sitting at pockets at the back of the overhang. Bust a few hard moves up and right before breaking into the headwall. Steel fingers needed!


From the Central Happiness area, head up the canyon towards the Savannah boulder, then break right and head up towards the east rim. Look for a prominent prow; the Trombones are just behind it.
