/ Birchen will it be green?
What about Wharncliffe?
I've been to birchen once and remember a fair amount of greeness, never been to Wharncliffe.
It'll be fine.
Birchen isn't particulary green, sure you aren't confusuing it with Gardoms that does get a little green? Warncliffe may be a bit green though, its higher in aspect than Birchen plus with the amount of rain we've had recently...
I'd say Birchen would be just fine, enjoy.
nope not confusing it see the greeness (plus never been to gardoms)
I must admit the only time I've been there it just ruled out a few climbs there was plenty of non green climbs :)
Wharncliffe is never green.
The one and only time I've been to Gardoms was last summer on the second of the really hot weekends that we had. It was green, damp and gopping even then.
Birchen I've never known to be too green to climb in the lower grades.
Except for the bits in the woods, which are always green :)
All of it, or just the 'popular' end?
Most of both crags will be fine. Some routes will always be green but even then only need a dry day at this time of year. Enjoy.

Well yeah, but most folk have all on to find them, never mind climb on them :-)
In the newer guides (BMC and Rockfax) they are pretty easy to find and with the new grades not so desperate to climb. Get with modern times.
Oh, I'm so sorry, my quill ran out of soot!
I've never been so had no info to go on (and still haven't)
Birchen was in good condition I didn't see much greenery :)

You could always have donned socks over your plimsolls!
have you ever tried that? I hear people talking about it but I can't imagine it would improve matters much with modern boots.
