Rosie bailed into Swan Crack, so I went up Noddy's on 1/2 rope (John cleaned Swan Crack on the other 1/2). Easy enough climbing, but only one dubious nut to protect the top half

May have gone too far round to the right at the top, following the previous guy up, as the top was hard !

Found plenty of gear, stayed left and couldn't find the 5a variation mentioned in OTM though.

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.
