[Me about to fail on A Swift Flight of Fancy, 1 kb]A wild and exciting line that is much steeper than first impressions suggest. Start at a thin left-slanting crack. 26m. 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

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.
