A Swift Flight of Fancy** E3 6a
[Shortly before the flight. BMC International Meet 2013, 1 kb]

Rockfax Description
A wild and exciting line that is much steeper than first impressions suggest. Start at a thin left-slanting crack.
Difficult moves up the crack soon ease from where less steep ground gains a break. Move right and climb a crack up a black streak to another horizontal crack. Traverse the break right for 4m and make a long stretch for a ledge above it. Finish up the crack above the ledge. © ROCKFAX

Failed on this years ago so pleased to have done it. Brilliant climbing on some of the best granite around.

Disappointed with one fall making the long move, although it would have helped if the lower cracks and break traversing right hadn't been so damp. A good route nevertheless.
