Overview
Main arete on Swallow Rock! Do the same start as the Green and Slack Slabs sharing the first 3 lead bolts with those routes then do a short and slightly runout traverse right after the 3rd lead bolt out onto the clean vertical arete.

*Less runout option = after clipping the shared 3 bolts on the start of the slabs clip the 1st bolt (4th overall) on Black Slab (to protect the runout traverse right) then traverse right to the arete and clip the first bolt on Hard To Swallow then easily make a move and reach back and unclip the bolt on Black Slab before resting and heading up the arete.
