Birch Tree Wall Eliminate >>
[Mike and Brian at Black Rocks, 2 kb]20m, 2 pitches. 1) 5a, 10m. Climb the thin right-hand jamming crack, and awkward blocky groove, to a good stance on the left. Starting up the left-hand crack is also a more consistent 4c. 2) 4c, 10m. Traverse the rounded breaks out left to easy ground. A high tree makes a useful belay for timid seconds. © ROCKFAX

The edges of the crack on the first section are well rounded. Passing the block after the first section takes some effort and thought. Section of rounded footing on the top traverse causes pause for thought, and placements but eases.

led P1 after Ed couldn't (although he really can!). Tricky first layback crack but great cam placements. Above this crack is also slightly awkward but gear again very good. Belayed at tree. 2nd P2 - definitely didn't want to slip - would have been BIG swing, pretty easy traverse thankfully. Lovely climb.
jonathan watt - AltLd O/S - 29/Aug/10

The start (crux) crack climb was great... a bit tenuous for placing gear. I under estimated the upper Emma-sized groove where I had to wriggle up. Once you get high and get the good hold you know it will be alright. Did 2nd pitch straight away... hard to protect the second.

chumleywarner - 2nd dnf - 20/Sep/09 with Angela Paul

Backed off this not too far up the starting crack, to end a disappointing afternoon. Just too much for the worn out hands and arms after the earlier exertions on Suicide Wall. There was a bat crawling around in the crack as I struggled to get some finger jams!
