Up the Swanee** E4 5c
[Rob Clifton on up the Swanee, 2 kb]22m.

Rockfax Description
22m. Grippingly precarious, especially for the tall. From runners in the thin crack teeter rightwards along the highest break until the horizontal crack can be reached. Swing along this and climb the excellent jamming crack at its end. © ROCKFAX

Though I was doing the Swan. Fantastically precarious/frightening pebble pulling traverse, gust of wind took my balance close to the end of the traverse and I took a nice pendulum lob. Climbed second go clean.

Had to swing round the traverse after coming off several times at the pebble match. The crack was fun though.

Thought I was on the swan, and that it was desperate for E3. Took a fall half way out and then manned up and got to the crack, before somehow letting go, took the big swing into the wall, lowered off (2m of it) and sat on a bouldering mat for 2 hrs. Hard E4, hard 5c, (6a IMHO)

Thought I was on the swan. A couple of big swings later, I decided to retreat
