The King Swing - First Attempts

The King Swing - First Attempts (view)

Aaron Reite attempts the King Swing pendulum on The Nose. After several swings, he finds that he must lower out even further before he can get around the arete to the second crack. (Note that this is the "Emperor Swing" variation. The old piton in the first crack was gone, and we thought this would be more "fun" than relying on a few tiny brass offsets.) The photos were taken with a 35mm SLR attached to a spotting scope, and were stitched together by me, with minimal photoshoppage. You can see more at
