30m. Climb up past a pocket and a groove to a ledge. Climb the crack (considerable polish) almost directly until you reach a large block (nut placement high out left). Don't surmount the block but instead hand traverse around the block boldly right and onto Swallows Nest. Climb directly to the top, tree or block belay.

PaulJepson 5 Jan AltLd O/S Lp1. Jake did well on p2 cos it's absolute nails. Good gear but you need 3 arms to place it! Don't know if it's a Wintours sandbag or just felt harder because it was 3 degrees but it felt like a meaty HVS. Hard to tell if your jam's good when your hand is a block of ice. First pitch has 2 or 3 absolute sinker nut placements but there's no point putting anything in until you get to the first & thread at the pocket. Not sure why matey boy below was placing micros.

Trevers 28 Oct, 2018 Lead O/S I made it clean and onsight. But oh dear. Certainly not my finest display, apologies to anyone within earshot/Chepstow/Gloucestershire who happened to hearing my somewhat deranged shouting. I nearly came off quite a few times here. Expended most of my energy trying to go too high for the traverse (clue, it's not the lip directly under the overhang). Then I forgot just how awkward and still strenuous the top section of Swallow's Nest is. Ended up cramping in just about every part of my body. I could barely do the final, easy top out because my body and soul were broken. But oh well, I didn't die and never have to climb this again now.

springfall2008 15 Apr, 2015 2nd O/S Lovely route, would like to go back and lead on day. Felt really pumped after climbing the crack, but nowhere much to rest so pushed on over the traverse to a welcome ledge. Thanks to whoever left a nut at the start of the traverse as it was very useful (it's still there). Certainly hard for the grade, I think with the polish it should really be HVS.

Chickened out of the layback and took advantage of height to reach for the top holds and shuffle along the ledge at full stretch (an easier option than a true hand traverse). Created horrible rope drag by using too short draws in the first part of pitch 2, making the groove unnecessarily exciting.

On a second try this move would be very easy though, since the difficulty lies in knowing when to traverse and the security of knowing that there are plenty of holds on the other side, although the arete blocks them and at first you have to rely on faith.

Feeling bold 26 Apr, 2008 2nd Much harder than expected VS, quite technical but worthwhile. P2 was good crack climbing upto right ledge. Tom led HVS 5b finish up arete, took time to figure it out. Gear in crack of arete was difficult to get out while trying to rest on ledge as a second. Scarey moves to get up this last bit, too hard for me, I needed a tight rope and got one. Excellent lead by Tom.
