|Swift Creek Spire
This is a very good limestone sport climb. The route has had only two ascents, so little bits of the surface will be breaking off (as they do on all new-dolomite/limestone climbs in the US, but after a few ascents it will be as clean as can be.
Start the route in an alcove on the southwest face. Move up and right over some loose rock for 15 feet, then onto the proper face. Climb this overhainging wall for 120 feet to the summit, passing a 15 bolts and a rap anchor (part way up) on the way.
Warning: A 70 meter rope only BARELY reaches the ground when rapping from the summit. ITs best to belay on top, lower your partner, and then do the two raps down (From top and halfway station). A 60 meter is no where near the bottom.
