Rockfax Description
12m. Climb to the roof and pass it on the right before moving carefully back left to a ledge. Balance up the final groove to safety. The ledge can be reached direct by a layback and a bit of a stretch. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Left of Birch Tree Wall is a prominent overhanging roof half way up the face. Climb to this and pass it by going right. Then step back left and up into a groove which feels bold and insecure.

a route of two halves, both with an interesting move.

Great route, move through rook using sidepull wasn't as hard as expected once I'd got high enough on the hold, and given the slightly green conditions, the top groove was spicy!!

Excellent route of two halves. Brilliant pull through the overhang (make sure you get your right hand in the side pull!) and delicate smearing in the top groove. Lovely.

backed off the lead - just couldnt seem to reach the sidepull. managed to get it once but not high enough, then couldnt get it again. watched how dave did it, but he could just about reach from the ledge. eventualy thrutched the move on second after a protracted struggle but it was nowhere near in control. gear above is there but very small.

A nice route. Easy for 5b but fairly run out at top.

Desperate moves to get established on the slab (I think reach may be an issue getting the pocket) and then hard moves on dirty scrittly holds to get up the top groove.

good lead by dave, gear is a bit sparse and mostly below you on hardest moves

initially thought there was no gear on the face, but its protectable (just) with micro cams and nuts. final groove is unprotected, but you would probably just plop onto the ledge

Bottled the top groove, probably would have been ok but 'probably' is a big word with poor gear!

The top scoop was definitely an enigma for James and me. Anni was 3rd man up and had no problems at all.
