Rather awkward in walking boots, weighted rope down climbing before committing...

Probably just VS but there is small wire fairly high up this.

VS in guidebook, I know no different. Pete did Swan Crack, and I followed up this just to see what VS felt like. Pretty easy, but would have been nervous on lead.
