Hey guys, I've been trying to work Halcyon out at El Cajon and the thing continually has spit me off about 5-8ft above the fourth bolt. In Art's guide he rated it 11b/c and in the SDCCG Dave rated it 11D. Ive been falling soon afer I get a left hand into a seam that eventually runs into the "swiftness" crack. Im getting tired of falling so much so if anyone has beta Ill take it. Thanks! -Colin

Are you following the "proper" line? Try going a different way. Move left or right. I remember going mostly up until I passed the Swiftness crack where it's mostly horizontal then moved right to the Swiftness direct finish anchors. There were weird sidepull moves up there. Technical delicate climbing. I'd call it 11d going into the swiftness direct anchors.
