[Rob Clifton on up the Swanee, 2 kb]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

Howard Lawledge - Lead O/S - 01/Mar/14 with Jack

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)
