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.

first route on limestone, found it really scary heard all these stories about route braeking off and gear popping out and feet slipping so it was a rather gripping experience
