[Paul Ingham on the crux of Swan Arcade. 1980., 2 kb]12m. A bold outing up the wall between the two main cracks. A fingery lower section leads to the bulges, move right and cross them at their widest point to a final difficult move. This is always a tough outing, and broken flakes on the overhangs have compounded the difficulties. © ROCKFAX
Wall right of Deperation Crack on small holds. Traverse right till under the widest part of the roof above, then go out on broken flakes to a spike at the lip where there is some welcome protection. Finish with a pull over left of Jabberwok's finishing chimney.
