Swingover Direct >>
14m. Another quality route. Climb the groove right of Clubfoot then swing right onto a good hold on the rib to the right. Climb the rib to a ledge then cross back left to a niche below a crack. Finish up this. The corner direct is VS 4c. © ROCKFAX

I think it must have been Swingside I was trying to finish up (straight up from the ledge?). I knew it didn't feel like VS! Went right in the end.
